Annie L. Blanc

Annie L. Blanc was born and raised in Miami, Florida. She attended Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida, where she earned a B.A. in Criminal Justice. While at Florida Atlantic University, Annie was part a myriad of organizations including but not limited to, FAU’s Student Government Program Board, The FAU Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the Xi Epsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Following her dream, Annie then went on to attend Florida A&M University College of Law where she earned a Juris Doctor. During law school, Annie participated in the American Civil Liberties Union and the Women Law Caucus.

As a first-generation Haitian-American Attorney, Annie began her career defending indigent individuals in parental rights disputes at a government agency. She then went on to become an Assistant State Attorney before becoming a criminal defense attorney, handling misdemeanors and felonies on both the adult and juvenile level. Since that time, Annie has gained extensive litigation experience by working for insurance defense firms, handling automobile accidents, premises liability, construction defects, and breach of contract claim. Additionally, Annie gained experience in handling first party commercial crime claims for a “Fortune 500” insurance company.

Rekindling her passion for helping others, Annie is now honored to represent victims of wrongful termination and retaliation. Annie handles a variety of cases arising under various laws including but not limited to,

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, which, among other things, prohibits discrimination in employment on account of a person’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or national origin, as well as retaliation;
  • 42 U.S.C. §1981, as amended, which, among other things, prohibits certain forms of race discrimination, as well as retaliation;
  • The Americans Disabilities Act of 1990 (the “ADA”) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, which, among other things, prohibit discrimination relating to employment on account of a person’s handicap or disability, as well as retaliation;
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act, which, among other things, prohibits taking adverse employment actions against eligible employees taking unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave;
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act, which among other things, prohibits discrimination in employment on account of a person’s age, as well as retaliation;
  • Section 440.205, Florida Statutes, prohibiting discharge, threats of discharge, intimidation or coercion for validly exercising one’s rights under Florida’s Workers’ Compensation Law; and 
  • The Fair Labor Standards Act and Florida Laws regulating minimum wage violations and tip pool violations on both the state and federal level.

When she is not working to ensure that the needs of her client are being met, Annie is actively serving her community voluntarily. She has served on the board of Central Florida Association of Women Lawyers and Paul C. Perkins Bar Association. Additionally, Annie served as the Diversity & Inclusion Chair for the Orange County Bar Association and is a Class XI fellow for The Florida Bar’s Wm. Reece Smith, Jr. Leadership Academy.
