Niuris Bezanilla’s practice focuses on Probate, Estate Planning, and Guardianship.
Niuris was born in Cuba and came to the United States when she was three years old. Since then, she’s been living in the beautiful paradise that is Miami.
At first, Niuris wanted to be a forensic psychologist because she believed that it’d be nice to help others in the mental health field. Niuris remembers when she was younger that she wanted to pursue a career in the medical field, but after her experience with a chemistry course, she felt that it wasn’t meant to be. She later came to the conclusion that she could help people more as an attorney.
Niuris is great at predicting TV shows and movie endings, which might upset people at first. Every time, she’d call the ending in the first episode, and usually gets it right. Perhaps that explains why she may sometimes find myself watching shows and movies alone.
During her time at Florida International University College of Law, Niuris came into contact with many different branches of law and found that probate was the most appealing area to her. She believes that overall, education is one of the most essential part of our lives and for herself as well, personally.
Niuris’ most memorable job has been her time at America Reads. During this experience, she was working with and assisting elementary school teachers. The schools she’d be working at had low economic resources which had really been eye-opening to her at the time.
Niuris loves food, yes, she is a foodie. It is her guilty pleasure, anything regarding desert is under her jurisdiction. Chocolate and ice cream are heaven on earth to her. Recently, MOJO donuts and Cold Stone have been Niuris’ go-to places to match her cravings. Niuris’ typical order at Cold Stone would be half coffee ice cream and half sweet cream with an embarrassingly amount of caramel and brownie. Her husband would jokingly describe the amount as “when you feel there’s enough and are embarrassed to say keep going, you keep going another two times.”
Personally, Niuris believes that social justice is a very important subject that must be addressed, and is fortunate enough to help people who are affected and oppressed by this issue through her services. Making an impact is very important to her, as well as helping those who need it the most. Niuris believes that most people have a misconception of what estate planning is and whether or not it is expensive, and this may discourage them from creating an estate plan. Estate planning is affordable, and you don’t have to be a millionaire to do this.
Niuris loves animals and being around them. Her ultimate goal is to have a farm with rescue animals and spend the rest of her days nursing and taking care of them. It would be her own personal paradise.
