As an Orlando-native, of Hispanic descent, Alexandra Tosado decided to pursue her passion in law in the beautiful city she was born and raised. She attended the University of Central Florida where she graduated with honors with a bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies. During her undergraduate studies, she gained experience helping people as she handled, probate matters, and family law matters, at a law firm while attending school. She then was recruited as an “all-star” to attend Florida A&M University College of Law with a scholarship due to her high academics and testing scores. During her studies in law school, she became passionate about trial after taking a course in “trial practice” and decided she wanted to continue helping people and pursue her dreams of becoming a trial lawyer.
She interned with a criminal defense firm working on high-profile cases, and also participated in a criminal defense clinic where she successfully represented over 100 indigent defendants assisting them in defending their constitutional rights.
Alexandra has also earned experience helping injured people, working at a small personal injury law firm in central Florida for eight years. There, she worked on complex litigation cases including car accident cases, traumatic brain injury cases, and wrongful death cases.
Alexandra’s passion for the community has been recognized by the Hispanic community as she has received awards for being the “Youngest Hispanic Business Professional,” and has been a member of the Hispanic American Law Student Association, the Orange County Bar Association, and the Hispanic American Professional Business Woman Association. In addition, she has been involved with non-profit Organization United Way for several years, participating with various charity and volunteering events.
On her free time, Ms. Tosado enjoys the outdoors, yoga, and cooking. As an associate at Morgan & Morgan, Ms. Tosado will continue her passion helping people, and representing those who are unable to represent themselves.
