Even before becoming an attorney, Dulce B. Fazel was already a part of the Florida legal community. For 18 years prior to entering law school, Mrs. Fazel was a legal assistant to a few private attorneys, and subsequently moved over to the corporate arena, as a senior paralegal with Merrill Lynch before going to law school and opening her own practice.
Dulce received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Florida, majoring in Banking & Finance (corporate track). In 2004, she graduated, with Honors, from Florida Coastal School of Law. While in law school, Dulce was consistently in the Dean’s Scholars list, and booked (highest grade) Constitutional Law, Commercial Law, Family Law, and Domestic Violence classes. She was a published member of the school’s Law Review, was a teaching assistant and research assistant for two professors, and served several semesters in the Family Law Clinic as a registered clinician. All that, while finishing law school in two years!!
After law school, Dulce worked for a short time as an associate for an AV-rated estate planning law firm. However, after only a few months, she opened her own law office, and continues that practice through this day. Dulce was a proud member of the Florida Family Law Inn of Court in Jacksonville (an invitation-only, fully vetted association of local family law attorneys & judges), and participated in numerous law-based community service events through her work with the Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, including Ask-a-Lawyer, Citizenship Day, as well as taking on individual pro bono cases.
Dulce was a frequent speaker at CLE seminars on topics such as QDROs, and “Divorce from A to Z.” She was also a featured CLE speaker at the St. Johns County F.L.A.G. (Family Law Advisory Group) meetings, as well as the circuit-wide F.L.A.G. meetings for the Seventh Circuit, discussing the nexus between family law & immigration law.
As associate counsel to this firm, Mrs. Fazel brings her vast experience in family law and civil litigation, as well as a wealth of experience in immigration, real property, and probate law. She has worked in all aspects of family law, ranging from dissolution of marriage, paternity, post-judgment issues, contempt, modification, and enforcement. Her knowledge of the other areas of law, and her 16 years of Florida family law experience, brings a well-rounded perspective of our cases and our clients, and how we can best serve you before, during, and after your case.
