Nora Rotella – The Family Lawyer

A family law attorney, Nora Rotella represents clients who are going through divorce proceedings, paternity cases and adoptions, but is most proud of her work advocating for children’s best interests before judges. 

“I love the area that I’m in because I have the opportunity to speak for those who sometimes are forgotten in a divorce – specifically the kids,” Rotella said. “Everybody else is fighting and mudslinging and children are on the sidelines taking a beating.”

In 2020, Rotella received the prestigious Ray H. Pearson Guardian Ad Litem award for the 11th Judicial Circuit by the Miami-Dade County Family Court Judges. In her Guardian Ad Litem work, Rotella said she often works with LGBT youth and undocumented children. 


After 12 years in practice, Rotella said she is grateful for not having lost the intentions that led her to pursue a career in law. 

“What makes me warm and fuzzy inside is that I’m able to come into this office every day and help someone else,” Rotella said. “That’s why I became a lawyer.”

Rotella, 37, is married to Patricia Hernandez, who is also her law partner. The couple met at St. Thomas University College of Law and reside in Kendall.
