Attorney Spotlight: Jennifer Mosquera

Attorney Spotlight - Jennifer Mosquera

What inspired you to pursue a law career? 

When I was in high school, I became heavily involved in mock trial, moot court, and debate. My senior year I had the honor of arguing before the Florida Supreme Court and winning the Florida State Moot Court Finals. Participating in these programs showed me all of the ways the law was dynamic and interesting, and it helped me realize that I wanted to be a lawyer.

What skills do you draw upon when it comes to your specific practice areas?

The most important skills I employ in my asset recovery practice are critical thinking and consistency. A lot of times, the best solutions require not only creativity, but additional follow through to make sure the desired results are achieved.

Why did you choose those areas of law?

I practice in the asset recovery space because I have an interest in international law and the challenges found therein. I enjoy keeping up with and learning about changes in the international law area, and thinking of the best ways to apply them to my practice.

You are heavily involved in many industry organizations. What do you enjoy most about your memberships? 

I enjoy fostering relationships with other attorneys and business leaders, both in South Florida and around the world. Nurturing these connections means that I learn more and have a deeper understanding of others perspectives, which is critical to improving my practice. I especially enjoy when this leads to opportunities to give back to the broader community — for example, I am involved with the Legal Services of Greater Miami, which provides legal counsel to low income individuals in South Florida. 

Tell us about a mentor who made an impact on your career?

Judge Lynn Quimby-Pennock was one of the first mentors I had in the legal field and she mentored me throughout law school and beyond. While I was completing my studies, she and I would have lunch together at least once a month, where we would talk not only about the challenges of legal practices, but also issues of integrity and honesty. She taught me that to be a good lawyer you have to maintain good moral character both in and out of the courtroom.

If you weren’t practicing law, what would you be doing?

I’d likely work in something relating to paleography. I’ve always been interested in ancient manuscripts and rare books.

What might people be surprised to learn about you?

For many years, I made sculptures predominantly using clay as my preferred medium. Some of my pieces were showcased in local amateur art exhibitions.

What is a good book you read recently or your favorite book?

Wild by Cheryl Strayed is a recent favorite. I don’t typically favor memoirs, but this one really stuck with me.
