She is a graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia currently ranked as the #21 school in the national university category. Initially in pursuit of a career in diplomacy, she secured a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies and French, with a concentration on the European Union while at Emory. She later obtained her Juris Doctorate degree from Nova Southeastern University's Shepard Broad Law Center.

Ms. Crescimone has been active in the legal community for over ten years beginning as a legal intern and transitioning into a paralegal position before becoming a licensed attorney.

Following college she transitioned into the private sector, working at a prestigious commercial and residential real estate development law firm. Following her successful completion of law school she was recruited by a commercial litigation practice in downtown Miami. However, in the most recent years she has relocated to Boca Raton where she broadened her practice areas to family divorce law and family estate planning and asset protection. She has served as an official speaker on the topics of estate planning and asset protection for the Florida Bar’s Speakers Bureau.

Legal Answers
Q. Are there any lawyers in Tallahassee florida to help me get power of attorney over my daughter?
A: If a child is a minor and you are the parent or legal guardian a power of attorney is not necessary. If your child has reached an age of majority, it would depend what you are trying to do- make medical decisions on her behalf, transact in her finances, etc. to determine what type of legal document is necessary to do this. You will need an adult's consent to gain this authority absent some sort of incapacity in which case a guardianship will have to be established through the court.
Q. On March 31st my fiance passed away and her daughters are coming through the house throwing stuff away
A: Absent a Will or a Trust directing how assets should be distributed and to whom they should be distributed upon a decedent's death, the Florida intestacy law will apply to determine who the heirs at law are. Consult an estate planning attorney in your jurisdiction for more information.
