Many of us have had experiences that shape our lives. There were two important influences in Shea Peterson’s life that shaped her unwavering commitment to practicing family law. The first was a challenging childhood, impacted by divorce. The second was an invaluable experience gained at her law school's pro bono, family-law clinic.
A Child of Divorce
“My parents divorced when I was just three years old. Nobody was really able to speak up for me,” Shea explained. “When I was 18, I watched my dad go through a second divorce. These experiences really cemented my passion for wanting to help people through some of the toughest times of their lives. At Florida Women's Law Group (FWLG), I have the satisfaction of doing that every single day.”
Pro Bono Law Clinic Work
The pro bono clinic that Shea was a part of during law school provided legal help to low-income families, making a positive impact on their lives. Under the supervision of a licensed attorney, Shea not only gained hands-on experience in the real-world practice of family law, but also served the community by helping those in need.
“ Being a person that women can lean on during their difficult times is what makes me enjoy family law. One big thing that I want women to know is that there is help and support available if you ask for it. A lot of the women I see don't always realize how much assistance is out there.”- Shea Peterson, Associate Attorney, FWLG
