Florence Montarmani

Associate Attorney

Florence Montarmani is a dynamic business law attorney with a commitment to diving deep into her clients’ objectives. Working intimately with each client to understand their business and personal goals allows her to meticulously tailor legal solutions that truly resonate.

Florence’s nontraditional path into the legal field shaped her focus on understanding her client’s goals. She majored in biology on a pre-med track and graduated a year ahead of her peers. But then she realized that her heart was not in medicine.  But business and law ignited a passion in her.  This passion powered the grit and determination necessary to persevere through the rigors of her graduate studies while late-night bartending to support herself through her studies.

Florence is the daughter of Persian parents who grew up in Sweden. Her international background, along with her degrees and experience in law (JD), business (MBA), and science (BS in biology) combine to give her an unparalleled perspective.
