Maggie A. Brito graduated 7th in her class from Nova Southeastern University’s Shepherd Broad Law Center in 2009 and obtained her Masters of Law in Taxation from the University of Florida in 2010. She has worked for the law offices of Hoffman & Hoffman since 2013, beginning as an associate attorney and advancing to junior partner with the firm.
Maggie’s first experience with family law changed the course of her practice. It was a pro-bono case that she handled on behalf of the Americans for Immigrant Justice. Maggie fought tirelessly to obtain asylum for a minor child who had been subjected to severe violence and abuse prior to leaving her home country of Guatemala for the United States. This experience inspired Maggie to continue to pursue justice for children and families throughout Florida in the areas of family, guardianship, probate and estate planning.
Maggie’s current practice focuses on family law matters, involving complex equitable distribution settlements, alimony, time-sharing, child support, paternity, and contempt and enforcement proceedings. Maggie also handles adversary and non-adversary probate, trust and guardianship matters and assists her clients with complex estate planning structures for sophisticated estates before marriage through pre-nuptial agreements and trusts; during marriage through post-nuptial agreements and asset-protection planning; upon divorce through the settlement and division of the estate; and, ultimately upon death, in the estate or trust administration, whether contested or uncontested.
