Victoria Cruz-Garcia demonstrates the culture of award-winning excellence within the firm on a daily basis. In every case she takes on, she demonstrates equal parts passion and skill. Her experience in civil litigation, as well as her dedication to her clients and to the legal community, has made her a powerful resource for clients and attorneys alike.

Through her experience in litigation and trials, Cruz-Garcia became interested in the up-and-coming members of her profession and took advantage of an opportunity to teach at the Western Michigan University-Cooley Law School's Tampa campus. Cruz-Garcia taught as an Assistant Professor at WMU-Cooley Law from 2012 to 2019 while litigating family law cases as a trial attorney during the day. She found being in the classroom to be rewarding and a way for her to pay forward the opportunities and encouragement that she had received to pursue her own law career years ago. Enthusiastically involved in the local legal community as well, Cruz-Garcia is the creator of Cooley Communicates, an organization that provides court interpreters for pro se litigants.

When she is out of the courtroom and the classroom, Cruz-Garcia participates as a member and past president of the Tampa Hispanic Bar Association and as past appointed member of the Florida Bar Association's Diversity & Inclusion Committee, as well as the Judicial Nominating Procedures Committee. Cruz-Garcia currently serves as the Secretary for the Tampa Hispanic Bar Foundation.

Cruz-Garcia has continued to stand out as one of the best with her inclusion on the 2018 'Legal Elite' list by U.S. Business News, as a "Super Lawyer®" 2017-2020, and a Rising Star℠ list maker by "Super Lawyers®" in 2012-2014, and as the recipient of the '2015 Luis Cabassa Award' by the Tampa Hispanic Bar Association. She was also awarded the Tampa Hispanic Heritage Trailblazer Award in Education in 2014 and the WMU Cooley Law School 'Great Deeds' award in 2013. She was recently recognized as 2021 Best Lawyers Magazine in Family Law.
