Ivette Labied moved from Cuba to the United States with her family at age 16. She graduated from high school with top honors and went on to Miami-Dade Community College and Florida International University. In December of 1997, Ivette received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Ivette went on to work as a registered nurse for several years as an intensive care and emergency room nurse, among other areas. It was during this time that she decided to become an attorney and continue helping others, but this time from a different level. Ivette received a Juris Doctor Degree in December 2003 and soon thereafter she became a member of the Florida Bar. She is also admitted to Federal Practice in the U.S. District Court Southern District of Florida and the District of Columbia. In 2011, she decided to pursue an LL.M in Transnational Commercial Practice which she completed in 2013, while in Europe. During this time, and in preparation of the future, Ivette became a Certified European Union Mediator, while also partaking in events such as the 1st World Mediation Summit which brought together professionals and world leaders in conflict resolution in the city of Madrid, Spain.
Ivette is a member of the Dade County Bar Association, The Young Lawyers Division, Association for International Association of Professional Women, American Bar Association, The Business Law Section of the American Bar Association, Florida Workers Advocates, International Trade Council, Global Trade Chamber, and Workers Compensation Section of the Florida Bar. In addition to these memberships, she performs pro bono work for different organizations that include: Florida Medical Reserve Corps, Lawyers for Children of America, Lawyers to the Rescue, Put Something Back, and the American Red Cross.
In addition, when not busy practicing law, Ivette uses her years of medical experience participating in International Medical Missions giving back to those in need.
