Alison Smith brings “Ignite Your Passion” speaker series to Broward College
Fort Lauderdale, FL – Weiss Serota Helfman Cole & Bierman attorney Alison Smith is joining forces with the Broward County Bar Association (BCBA) to bring the Ignite Your Passion speaker series to minority students at Broward College.
Ignite Your Passion will offer Broward College students the opportunity to hear from people of different backgrounds, from attorneys to doctors to tech entrepreneurs and beyond, on a monthly basis. The program is expected to have a mentoring component so students are able to receive one-on-one time with South Florida’s most successful people. Ignite Your Passion was designed to grant students a gateway to hear from leaders in the community, feel inspired, and open their eyes to what career paths are available to them, no matter their background.
“I’m honored to partner with BCBA on this important program,” said Smith. “When I was a student, I would have jumped at the chance to participate in a program like this. I hope students will take advantage of getting to hear first-hand from some of our community’s greatest leaders.”
Harold Prior, attorney and the first African American to successfully run for State Attorney in the Democratic primary, will kick off the program on Nov. 23, 2020 at noon via Zoom. Future presentations will be held in person once it is safe to do so.
“What I love most about this initiative, is that it helps our students better identify with their major or program,” said Stephanie Repaci, Campus Director of Student Life at Broward College. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to hear from a professional in that industry as to what they can potentially expect in the day-to-day aspects of that career.”
“I am truly elated to work with Alison and Broward College to bring this program to fruition,” said Braulio Rosa, Executive Director at Broward County Bar Association. “I hope this program will inspire students, spark interest and provide a new perspective on possible career paths.”

Additionally, she is past president of the Caribbean Bar Association, as well as past chair of the Board of Directors for Legal Aid Service of Broward County and Coast-to-Coast Legal Aid.

Florida home insurance policy owners should know that no two insurance carriers’ policies are alike. Each home insurance policy is written by a team of insurance company legal experts to meet the financial and legal risk profile that the company wishes to accept for the premium paid. The State of Florida does regulate the insurance industry and many terms of coverage are protected by law but there can be many areas of exclusion and payout limitations that are specific to each contract. When a claim is disputed, it’s easy for a consumer to feel overwhelmed their friendly neighborly insurance agent isn’t in the process it’s done by the claims department which has an entirely different agenda than the sales agent.

Top Rated – Miami Home Insurance Law Firm 

In the event that your home is damaged or destroyed by a hurricane or severe storm, fire, water or mold damage, or other events, don’t be surprised if the insurance company’s first reaction is to respond in one of the following ways:

  • Claim that your damage is due to some pre-existing condition
  • Assert that your claim is not covered under the terms of your policy
  • Offer you a low settlement amount that does not cover your losses
  • Allege that your claim is fraudulent, or that you did not keep up with your premium payments
  • Fail to investigate or respond to your claim
  • Cancel your policy based on recently-discovered “errors” in your application
