Trizia is proudly Puerto Rican and Italian; her parents meeting one other when they were just 11 years old, her mother coming to the Bronx, New York from Vega Alta, Puerto Rico, and her father arriving by ship from Trani, Italy. Trizia was born in the Bronx, and raised in Italy, Puerto Rico, Germany and Tampa, Florida. Growing up in Europe and Puerto Rico, coupled with traveling the world, forged Trizia's enormous sense of gratitude for the United States, its Constitution and the incredible rights bestowed upon its citizens and non-citizens. Her extensive life experiences also developed her love and passion of law, justice and teaching. She grew up speaking, writing and reading English, Italian and Spanish as her native languages. Mrs. Eavenson graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from The University of South Florida and proudly earned a Juris Doctor degree from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University College of Law, cum laude. Trizia was crowned Ms. Tampa in 1997 on the platform of legal advocacy of abused and neglected children. A firm believer in a strong work ethic, she has worked in the legal field since 1993, starting from the bottom up, beginning as a "temp" in a bi-lingual law firm, answering phones, throwing out trash and cleaning toilets, to becoming a paralegal and continuing to work as a paralegal/law clerk as she attended law school in the evening program. Trizia has been a certified Guardian ad Litem since 1993.

A passionate trial attorney, Trizia's practice encompasses multiple areas of civil litigation, including, but not limited to, catastrophic personal injury; medical malpractice; corporate and business law; defective medical devices; real property; property exemptions, tax and valuations; local government and administrative law; premise liability; contracts; products liability; animal law; construction law, Veterans law and wrongful death.

Be The Diamond

Over the last 10 years, Trizia has developed an exciting program, "Be The Diamond," mentoring and empowering people of all ages and all walks of life with "real talks," "pay-it-forward" fashion, and enhancing skill sets in order to propel one to the superhero status they already are, however, may not yet appreciate due to adversity. "Be The Diamond" works directly with all demographics to help those realize their self-worth and find their "YES" in life. Trizia is a firm believer in polishing yourself up so you can shine and that pressure either crushes you or makes you a diamond. She is proud of her work with adults as well as students in elementary, middle school, high school and college, to enhance their self-esteem through leadership mentoring. Trizia focuses on the "4 P's" - Passion, Perseverance, Perspiration/pain and Preparation - as well as themes of never giving up, resisting the casualization and disconnection that is so prevalent in our culture, avoiding excuses, self-responsibility, career advice, how to dress appropriately for life's adventures and how to best find one's strong suit in life. Trizia has personally donated thousands of hours and dollars' worth of clothing and shoes to young women in need while unearthing their finesse and building their confidence.

Before sitting for the Florida Bar, Trizia was a Certified Legal Intern for the Brevard County State Attorney's Office, where she tried cases to verdict for the State and polished her trial skills. While at the State Attorney's Office, Trizia was honored to work closely on the high profile "Ella" animal cruelty case, the white German Shepherd left to die in a crate in her home by her owner. Trizia drafted the in-depth Memorandum of Law in Opposition to the Motion to Suppress Evidence, citing the exigent circumstances which allowed the police to enter the owner's home without a warrant. The trial judge sided with the State and denied Ella's owner's Motion to Suppress. On appeal, the high Court agreed with the trial judge's decision, which included the Court's reliance on the Memorandum of Law and case law cited by Trizia. During her last year of law school, Trizia gained immense legal knowledge as a Judicial Law Clerk for numerous prestigious Orange County judges, including now Fifth District Court of Appeals Justice, The Honorable Jay Cohen. Mrs. Eavenson was a founding member and President of the Federalist Society, a Moot Court Competitor, and Executive Board Member and Representative of the Hispanic American Law Student Association (HALSA). She received the highest grade in her class for Trial Practice, Insurance Law and Eminent Domain. She frequently returns to her law school as a guest professor to teach trial advocacy and civility. Trizia has had the honor of spending time with Supreme Court Justices Scalia, Roberts, Alito, Ginsberg and Thomas, where she discussed landmark decisions as well as current issues facing our great Nation.

Testimonials

"Recently my elderly parents were involved in a catastrophic auto accident and were in need of a skilled attorney. I did not hesitate to recommend Attorney Trizia Eavenson. My parents were both severely injured and extremely out of sorts but Trizia met with them immediately and made a horrible situation better with her calming personality. When first meeting Trizia, my parents immediately knew that they had made the right decision. Trizia was always available to them, whether it was by phone or by making a personal visit to them two hours away. My mother pointed out that Trizia is quite different than most attorneys with her caring and concerned demeanor. Trizia put any and all of their legal questions to rest. My parents were so extremely satisfied with her legal knowledge and professionalism that they used her again for another legal matter. I would not hesitate to recommend Attorney Trizia G. Eavenson for any legal situation. You will definitely be in good hands."

"As the owner of a large business I would like to say that I very rarely meet and do business with someone as qualified in their field as Trizia. She is not only professional and pleasant to deal with she is one of the top in her field of representing her clients. I have witnessed her in person handling a very high dollar case that went to mediation and her skill set in negotiating as well as her common sense approach to finding resolution were amazing. I could not recommend legal counsel to represent me and my company any higher than Trizia, she finds ways to get things done for her clients."
