Yaima Holzman practices in the areas of general commercial, condominium and planned development, and insurance defense litigation.
Ms. Holzman strives to provide excellent legal representation to her clients through dedicated legal representation and frequent communications with clients for effective case review and evaluations.
Ms. Holzman was born in Cuba and immigrated to the United States in 1998. She attended Carlos Albizu University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Magna Cum Laude – 2009). She then attended Florida State University from where she received her law degree (2012). A fervent advocate for children and women’s rights, Ms. Holzman provided significant assistance to vulnerable communities through her pro bono work which earned her a Certificate for Distinguish Pro Bono Service. Ms. Holzman worked as a Certified Legal Intern in her law school’s Public Interest Law Center, Medical Legal Partnership Clinic. She also participated in the FSU Cares Medical/Legal Partnership and traveled with medical and law students to provide medical and legal services to migrant workers in Immokalee, Florida.
After law school, Ms. Holzman moved to Jacksonville where she practiced general civil litigation in State and Federal Court. Ms. Holzman handled all aspects of her clients’ cases from intake to case resolution. Ms. Holzman continued to provide pro bono work through Jacksonville Area Legal Aid (JALA) by taking pro bono cases, teaching “how to” classes concerning family law proceedings and filings, and attending “ask a lawyer” weekend events where lawyers answer legal questions and provide guidance to individuals who cannot afford legal representation. Ms. Holzman also became a Women’s Giving Alliance member, a women’s philanthropic organization that aims to improve the lives of women and children in Northeast Florida. She joined various legal and community organizations which led to leadership roles within those organizations including Chair of the Human Rights Committee of the Jacksonville Bar Association (2014-2016), Chair of Judicial Reception and Board member of the Jacksonville Women Lawyers Association (2014 -2016), member of the City of Jacksonville, Human Rights Commission (2014-2016) and member of the City of Jacksonville, Mayor’s Commission on the Status of Women (2014-2016).
As part of her husband’s military career, Ms. Holzman moved to Dothan, Alabama in 2016 and became a licensed attorney in Alabama before the family permanently relocated to Orlando, Florida in the fall of 2017. Ms. Holzman practiced medical malpractice defense and represented hospitals, medical groups, and physicians throughout Florida for approximately three years. Ms. Holzman joined our practice in February of 2021, bringing with her years of legal experience and her unwavering belief in the value of giving back to our community. Ms. Holzman is currently a member of the Orange County Bar Association and the Central Florida Association of Women Lawyers.
On the weekends, Ms. Holzman is usually at one of the local parks cheering her sons, Jon Hernan (4) and James (2), through soccer practice (usually a very enthusiastic parent sure to embarrass them in a few years), working with her husband in restoring their 1920 bungalow in the Park Lake/Lake Highland area (truly a labor of love), and spending quality time with family members from near and far.
