Dimary Casiano Cotty, Esq.
Attorney Dimary Casiano Cotty is one of the founders of De Jesus & Casiano Law Firm. She is fluent in Spanish. Dimary graduated as the most outstanding student of the Bachelor of Art degree in Pre Law Studies from Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico. From a young age she felt the need to help the community. She joined AmeriCorps VISTA as a volunteer and for 3 years she had the opportunity to participate in several different outreach projects to better the living conditions in the surrounding cities.
While working as a volunteer she decided turning to law would allow her to continue her dedication to helping others and having a deeper hand in improving the communities. She attended Law School at Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico where she had the opportunity to participate in the Ibero-American Institute of the Hague Competition, assisted in a Pro-Bono Clinic as a student-attorney and graduated Magna Cum Laude while being in the Deans Honor List during all her years of studies.
After her studies, Dimary, acquired her State and Federal Puerto Rican license and worked as a respectful attorney. Upon deciding to move, she worked in a local Tampa criminal law firm as a paralegal which allowed her to gain strong experience and the drive to recertify in Florida. Her licensing now allows her to continue to aid those needing assistance in their affairs here in the State of Florida and in Puerto Rico in both State and Federal Courts.
Dimary strives to assist people in knowing what tools are available to them and how to effectively utilize their knowledge in hopes that they are able to obtain their goals. She feels blessed in being able to assist others in improving their lives and in gaining control over the areas they feel hardship. She is dedicated and envisions to continue improving herself in order to fight for your rights.
