Lowndes is pleased to announce that family law attorney Derren Ciaglia has been named vice president of children’s programming for the Rosen JCC Board of Directors. Ciaglia will be responsible for creating a more united early childhood learning center culture that focuses on connecting families, teachers, and the community through social, recreational and community activities.
A shareholder at the firm, Ciaglia devotes her practice to challenging family law matters, including divorce, child support, child custody, alimony, paternity matters and family law litigation involving complex financial and parenting issues. As a mother of three, she understands the importance of minimizing the effect the legal process can have on families. She tries to find creative solutions that are tailored to each family’s unique circumstances.
Trained in the interdisciplinary model of collaborative family law, Ciaglia is passionate about advocating for her clients and providing them with support and guidance during what can be difficult and uncertain times in their lives. She is a compassionate listener, a good problem solver and settlement focused, negotiating on behalf of clients both in and out of mediation.
Ciaglia is a member of The Florida Bar and the Orange County Bar Association. She is admitted to practice law in Florida and has previously practiced in Illinois. She earned her law degree cum laude from the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where she received a Family Law Certificate and three Book Awards in perspectives of family, collaborative law, and intimate partner violence assistance. She has dedicated her entire legal career to matters involving families.
