From the rink to the courtroom former president of the Miami-Dade chapter of Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Sabrina Puglisi is now the 2021-2022 president of the Miami-Dade Bar. She is the first female criminal defense lawyer to lead the organization, and she is the first woman of color to serve as president.

Before she was an attorney, Puglisi was a competitive figure skater. Training for the Olympics required her to travel. However, when Puglisi’s parents were no longer able to continue her training, she had to find a new interest.
