Alessandra B. Manes received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Central Florida and earned her Juris Doctorate from the Barry University School of Law. Ms. Manes began her professional career working at a firm that practiced exclusively immigration law, representing individuals and entities in obtaining their business and personal immigration objectives. Alessandra was later presented with the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in the practice area she was always the most passionate about, family law. This allowed Alessandra to personally handle a variety of family law cases both through the initial dissolution of marriage or paternity matter as well as through post-final judgment matters. She dealt with issues such as equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities, alimony, parenting issues, timesharing, child support, and contempt and enforcement of orders.
Alessandra was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2015 and the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida in 2016. She is a member of the Florida Bar Association and the Orange County Bar Association. As an active member of the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar Association Alessandra serves on the Children’s Issues, Equitable Distribution, and Domestic Violence committees. In 2017, Alessandra completed the Collaborative Law training program at the Barry University School of Law.
In 2021 and 2022, Alessandra was recognized as Best Lawyers®: Ones to Watch, as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers, and in 2020 was named one of Orlando’s Personalities of the Year by Orlando Style Magazine.
When Alessandra is not vigorously advocating for her clients, she is spending most of her time with her four-legged furry only child, Rogue. During football season, Alessandra can be spotted at any Florida team’s stadium when they are up against her beloved Denver Broncos. But above all else, Alessandra’s most valued role in life is that of “Tia Lelê” to her niece, Gabi and nephew, Leo.
As a native of Brazil, she is fluent in Portuguese.
