Miami Immigration Attorney
Ada B. Pozo
Radio personality Ada Pozo can be heard weekdays (6:00 pm ET, 3:00 PT)
as host of the SiriusXM radio show ACCESO LEGAL, which is broadcast as
part of the network's popular Cristina Radio channel (Channel 146).
On the show, Pozo addresses a broad spectrum of issues in a style that
is both informed and engaging, fueled by more than a decade of experience
as a judge and trial attorney in Miami Dade County. She has appeared as
expert legal analyst on numerous TV and radio news programs, including
Fox News' "Your World With Neil Cavuto"; ABC's "Good
Morning America"; and Univision's "Despierta America",
"Al Punto", and "Aqui y Ahora". Pozo is a partner
in the Miami-based law firm Pozo Goldstein, LLP where her focus is immigration
and criminal defense.
As a former Miami Dade County Court judge for five years, Ms. Pozo presided
over thousands of cases in the criminal, civil and domestic violence divisions,
and has seen first-hand the impact of crime on families and the community.
In addition, she was certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a mentor
judge, and was tapped to assist and educate judges new to the bench.
As a trial attorney with the Miami Dade County Public Defenders office,
she litigated cases ranging from DUI and cocaine possession to armed robbery,
capital sexual battery, and murder, with an estimated 35-40% involving
Hispanic defendants. She also served as a Forensic Social Worker for Miami
Ms. Pozo heads the
criminal defense team at Pozo Goldstein, LLP.
Her interest in fighting for the rights of others was probably pre-destined,
as Pozo comes from a long line of high-profile public servants. Her grandfather,
Justo Luis del Pozo, was the last man to serve as Mayor of Havana, Cuba
prior to the government's overthrow by Castro. Her father, Dr. Rolando
Pozo, was the island nation's last Surgeon General prior to Castro's
takeover. The family subsequently immigrated to the U.S. and settled in
Florida, where Ada was born and raised.
Pozo holds both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees from Florida
International University, where she majored in Criminal Justice (B.S.)
and Sociology/Anthropology (B.A.). She received her Juris Doctorate from
the University of Miami. She is a member in good standing of the Florida
Bar Association, the Cuban American Bar Association, the Florida Association
for Women Lawyers and the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
