The Ivanor Law Firm

My Beginnings My name is Carlos Ivanor and I'm a criminal defense, family law, and immigration attorney. I was born in 1975 in Lima, Peru, and my family immigrated to the United States in 1979.
As a first generation American I know about the sacrifices and struggles one goes through to assimilate into these great United States of America – land of limitless opportunities, home of the brave and of the free.

I attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida, where I obtained my Bachelor in Science degree in Political Science with honors.
Following my time at FSU, I enrolled in law school in the historic and prestigious Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Texas Southern University and received my doctorate in 2004. My Employment Experience Upon completing law school I was employed by a large Personal Injury law firm in Orlando, and also assisted a large attorney referral service focusing on immigration law. I was then employed as an Assistant Attorney General in the criminal division in Daytona Beach, Florida and as a prosecutor I handled all type of felony offenses and argued cases before the Fifth District Court of Appeals, the highest court in Central Florida. I also represented the Attorney General's Office in Federal Court (United States Middle District of Florida in Orlando, Florida).
As an attorney I have also worked for the Ninth Judicial Circuit's Office of the Public Defender in Osceola and Orange Counties, and I've handled thousands of cases as a Criminal Defense Attorney ranging from minor traffic offenses, DUI's, and misdemeanors, all the way to violations of probation and all types of 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree felony cases.
Testimonials I was charged with a very serious offense. I was looking at a 10yr. minimum mandatory sentence. Mr. Ivanor worked very hard and was always prepared. He obtained a probationary sentence for me and I am very very very happy with his representation. He filed numerous motion in court and was even successful in arguing motion to suppress. He is an excellent attorney and goes above and beyond. He is one of the best attorney in Orlando, Florida. I would recommend Mr. Ivanor to anyone who was charged with a crime. - M.R.C. M. R. C.
