Yisel Villar

Yisel Villar moved from Cuba to the United States when she was 25 years old. She studied law and graduated from the University of Havana with a Juris Doctor degree.

Ms. Villar always dreamed of becoming an attorney in the United States. When she arrived in the United States in 2004. She attended Miami-Dade College where she received two associate degrees majoring in Paralegal Studies and Pre-Law.

Ms. Villar then attended St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami where she graduated Cum Laude receiving her (second) Juris Doctor degree. While at law school, Ms. Villar was a member of the St. Thomas School of Law Moot Court Board and the Inns of Court. She received academic scholarships as well many awards, including Dean’s List honors for all semesters and the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Trial Advocacy, awarded to the student with the top grade in the class.

Ms. Villar joined the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A. in Miami, Florida, as a paralegal in 2011. She continued to serve as a law clerk for Mr. Weiner while she attended law school. Her experience in a criminal defense practice deepened her conviction that being an advocate and defending clients facing criminal charges is what she wished to do. She is a member of The Florida Bar and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Ms. Villar was a guest speaker at the 2019 NORML Key West Legal Seminar presenting the topic of Federal criminal bond forfeitures.
