Ms. Pazos believes that one’s best work begins with diligence and attention to detail. The majority of her practice involves defending manufacturers and retailers in asbestos-related products liability actions in state and federal courts. In addition, Ms. Pazos is also active on the employer and carrier defense side in claims filed under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, the Defense Base Act, and the Florida Workers’ Compensation Statute.

Before attending college, Ms. Pazos spent two years as a legislative intern with a member of the Florida House of Representatives. In law school, she worked with volunteer staff at Miami-Dade County’s Family Law Self-Help Clinic. As a law school research assistant, her efforts on the subjects of international armed conflicts, human rights violations, and elections irregularities in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean helped to further broaden her diverse approach to legal education.

Ms. Pazos is an active member of the Defense Research Institute (DRI), and is especially involved with their Diversity Committee. In 2012, she was selected as a “Rising Star” in Florida by Super Lawyers magazine. Already fully conversant in Spanish, Ms. Pazos is working toward fluency in Italian as well.
