Brittany Pinson is an associate with the firm who has litigated hundreds of marital and family law cases to conclusion since being admitted to the Florida Bar in 2016.
Ms. Pinson chose to become a lawyer to give others a voice in a legal setting. This desire was fueled by her time as a teen court attorney in Highlands County and at various mock trial summer programs she attended throughout high school. Prior to joining Sessums Law Group as a clerk in 2012, Ms. Pinson worked in almost every aspect of the legal field. She started as an afternoon office runner at a one-attorney law firm in Sebring during high school, worked in various legal departments as an intern in college, and over the course of her law school career Ms. Pinson interned for multiple judges in different civil divisions and spent time interning with a housing authority on a pro bono basis as well as working at private law firms that handled family and other civil litigation. After considering this broad exposure to the law, Ms. Pinson decided that marital and family law offered the best opportunity to cultivate her passion for helping others while allowing her to experience professional satisfaction when she walks into the courtroom for a contested hearing. As a result, Ms. Pinson primarily focuses her legal career on marital and family law matters.
