Ninowtzka Mier focuses her practice on pre-suit litigation, where she strives to help insurance carriers resolve matters involving motor vehicle liability or personal injury as early in the life of a claim as possible.
Ms. Mier started her legal career at a maritime and admiralty law firm, where she defended medical malpractice and complex tort litigation. She later joined Fowler White Burnett, where her practice shifted from maritime law to insurance defense.
Ms. Mier worked with her colleagues in litigation strategy, handled pre-suit demands, and multiple party settlement negotiations. Ms. Mier learned from personal experience how the legal system affected her family while they emigrated to the United States from Colombia, South America. It was during this time that she first developed an interest in understanding the law so that she could make it accessible and understandable for her future clients.
An avid writer, Ms. Mier authored a short story titled “A Change of Plans” in a book compilation titled “Counting the Years,” published by Resilience Multimedia. The book focuses on the effects of incarceration upon families. More recently, she authored articles for the online journal SUE, The Magazine for Women Litigators, and is a guest blogger at the Estrin Report.
When Ms. Mier is not practicing law or writing articles, she volunteers with Legal Aid Services of Broward County on a pro bono basis. She assists victims of domestic abuse remain in the United States legally under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). She also participates in the Books and Breakfast program at PACE Center for Girls in Broward County by reading books with PACE residents over breakfast. Ms. Mier was recognized by the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a runner up for Woman of the Year (2012). She has raised funds and participated in a triathlon for LLS in memory of her late sister, Helen.
