Jessica C. Portalatin, Esq.

Founder and Partner

Phone (786) 882-7569

Instead of reading about me in third person, allow me to introduce myself — I’m Jessica, and I’m blessed to be the founder of Portalatin Law Firm. But more than that, I am a wife, mom, stepmom, daughter, sibling, businesswoman, and a woman of faith.

Full transparency… owning a business did not come easy to me. And at times, it still doesn’t.

There are so many moving parts that need to come together when you are running, a business that is not only successful, but one that you are proud of.

One where your team knows they have a valuable purpose. 

One where you work with the intention of blessing someone else, and where your clients feel comfortable reaching out to talk about personal things. (Because let’s be real… when you are a business owner, business IS personal.)

I know how much time running a business can take. And I know how little it can leave for family time, and me-time. My goal is to give that time back to my clients, so they can continue to being the heart and soul of their businesses. 

If you’ve made it this far down the page, thank you. I appreciate you being the kind of person who would take a moment to get to know me and understand what I am all about. I look forward to doing the same for you. 

Hobbies: Tennis, Salsa dancing, and Cooking.

Pets: None.

Love Language: Acts of Service

Pet Peeve: When someone spoils the end of a movie or show I have not watched.

Wished Superpower: Teleportation.

Bucket list item: Go to Egypt.

Lourdes Corzantes

Lourdes Corzantes

Client Relations Specialist

Hey there! I’m Lourdes Corzantes, but everybody calls me Lu or Lou. I’ve been answering to those nicknames since I was a little munchkin.

I’m a proud mom to an amazing 11-year-old kiddo. I am originally from beautiful Guatemala. My passion is indulging in food from all around the world, especially Japanese cuisine—I’m absolutely in love with it.

I studied Communication Sciences with a Specialization in Broadcasting and Voiceover.

I’ve worked with international companies since my teenage years, diving into customer service, technical support, legal assistance, and intake specialist roles. But here’s the twist: my heart truly belongs to being a mom.

I’ve got some hidden talents up my sleeve! I’ve been wielding paintbrushes and sketching away for years, dreaming of hosting my own local art exhibition one day.

But wait, there’s more! I’m on a mission to become a sign language interpreter in my country. Growing up surrounded by the deaf community, I fell head over heels for the idea that words aren’t the only way to express thoughts and feelings.

My mantra? Always do everything with love, and I make sure to apply it every single day.

Mariana A. Navega

Senior Paralegal

Hello! My name is Mariana, I’m a Brazilian licensed attorney and I love how the world of Law works and how it can help people in their endeavors. I work with Corporate Law and Contract Law and earned my Master’s degree from Cornell Law School, where I improved my skills and gained a deeper understanding of the legal landscape.

On a personal level, I have a passion for new experiences and challenges, and I genuinely believe faith can move mountains. For me, travelling is a way of experiencing new cultures and learning from the diversity of people in the world. This is also why I love watching films, there is so much world to get to know.

I believe these experiences contribute a lot for my legal career and enhanced my ability to connect with clients and understand their unique challenges.

This is who I am and my approach is based on merging legal expertise with a business-oriented view. I hope we can connect soon and that together we can accomplish great results!

Edgar Bustamante

Edgar Bustamante

Senior Paralegal

My name is Edgar Bustamante. I am an international business lawyer from the coastal part of Ecuador in South America. I love surfing, playing music, and soccer. I studied business & finance for a semester in Buenos Aires, Argentina before deciding to join Law School in Ecuador. During those years, I specialized in commercial and investment law and managed various patent and trademark cases in my first law firm position. Later, I had the opportunity to study international business law in Spain and work as legal counsel for GE Europe, where I was introduced to various new technologies and complex commercial licensing regimes that re-directed my career for years to come.

After those experiences, I won a full scholarship to study international investments at U. Miami and created a bond with the flourishing city in Florida that I call a second home. Now, I am pleased to join Portalatin Law Firm and contribute to a great team that resembles the values that I believe in.

Génesis Rodriguez

Business Development Assistant

Proudly Venezuelan, I was born in the vibrant city of Caracas. Raised as the daughter of a military father, I had the fortune to travel to every corner of my beloved country, absorbing its diversity and cultural richness. From a young age, I explored various disciplines such as dance, karate, swimming, and music, actively participating in extracurricular organizations during my school years.

My passion for learning and serving others led me to engage in community service activities, providing educational support to children from underprivileged communities. This experience inspired me to pursue a career in law, where I found my true calling in the maritime field, leading me to specialize in international maritime law.

Determined to continue growing professionally, I completed my studies to become a university professor and obtained a Master’s in Corporate Law. My thirst for knowledge is insatiable, and I am always seeking opportunities to expand my horizons. Being part of the team at Portalatin Law Firm has become a cornerstone in my professional journey, providing me with the tools and the perfect environment to continue growing and evolving, teaching me to trust in my potential and harness it. This is why I decided to start pursuing my MBA.

Outside the academic realm, I am a passionate Potterhead (always). I love animals (especially bunnies), have an irresistible weakness for chocolate, and am madly in love with my beautiful family.


América Castañeda

Marketing Assistant

My name is América, I enjoy picnics, sushi, sea food swimming and journaling. I have 2 cats; Biscuit and Simba. I’m a huge Swifty and fashion enthusiast. I enjoy cooking and I think I’m very good at it. I’ve been working in Social Media, Branding and PR for 8 years now and my goal is to be a Creative Director for a brand. I was diagnosed with Lupus 11 years ago and I take every opportunity I have to educate people about it as it is a very common but also very misunderstood disease as it involves chronic pain which is invisible and of course it is hard to understand pain when you cannot see it. I’m a very determined and dedicated person, I love to create and work with people with the same love for growth.
