Lizette Babun is founding attorney and the managing partner of the Miami-based law firm, BABUN & TORRES, P.A., where she has devoted up to seventy five percent of the Firm’s practice to servicing legal service groups for the last thirty (30) years. She has advanced knowledge of the legal, regulatory, marketing and financial aspects of providing large group insurance services having previously worked for the former American Banker’s Insurance Group, as both in-house State Filings and Government Affairs. As an immigrant to the United States and a first generation college graduate with a Juris Doctorate Degree, she takes great pride in zealously representing her clients who have come from other countries and US Citizens. Her hard-core work ethic has inspired her to work extremely hard for her clients to prove what her clients believe is fair in the eyes of the law.
Lizette is responsible for about half the nearly nineteen thousand files that have been opened by the Firm over the years including representing parents in dependency cases, termination of parental rights, individual and business clients on administrative, bankruptcy, business, civil, corporate, criminal, estate planning, family, financial, mediation, real estate and traffic matters. Her strategic planning duties include developing and implementing customer service in the firm, making the clients comfortable while they are in the legal process even though they may be going through difficult times. This strategy allows for the increase of client referrals from their family and friends and thereby increasing the number of office files.
Lizette speaks fluent Spanish and is sensitive to the different Hispanic cultures to allow her a better understanding of her Spanish speaking clients. When she is not assisting with speech and debate tournaments, she can be found spending time with his young adult Sons and Husband, Matthew Torres, who is also her law partner.
