VoyageMIA Interviews Attorney Garnes as one of Miami’s “Hidden Gems”

Attorney Erika V. Garnes was interviewed by VoyageMIA to discuss her firm, her career, and some of her favorite memories from childhood.

Can you talk to us about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back, would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Absolutely not. I think this career is amazing, prominent, and lucrative, but there is very hard work involved, and if you’re truly not committed to the game, you will feel it. The area is also very much male-dominated, and sometimes, it is hard to be taken seriously, but I’ve managed to learn how to navigate these struggles.

I mean, it is really not easy to be a minority Latina female lawyer in such a powerful male dominated industry but I have learned not only how to survive but to thrive — its an everyday struggle too — it never goes away, you just get better at it.
