Olivia Devonmille

Any kind of legal issue can be frustrating. But when you’ve been hurt at work and are seeking fair compensation, it’s natural to feel completely overwhelmed. Your place of employment should allow you to flourish both physically and emotionally. When this doesn’t happen, you might not know where to turn. I understand—because I’ve been there before. 
That’s why I started the Law Office of Olivia Devonmille, P.A. As an attorney offering personalized, compassionate service to everyone I meet, I believe in an approach that treats each client as an individual with unique needs. I’m a solo practitioner, which means I bring a level of attention to my practice that larger firms simply can't match. When working with me, you'll receive direct, one-on-one guidance from a workers’ compensation attorney. This personal touch makes a significant difference in the legal process. To me, you aren’t just another case number. 

Together, let’s navigate the legal landscape to work toward the best possible outcome for your situation. You deserve a chance to move forward with confidence, and I’m here to help.

My Roots 

I was born and raised in Fort Pierce, Florida, a place that's close to my heart. Growing up in this vibrant city instilled in me a deep appreciation for community and the importance of standing up for one another. It's here in the Treasure Coast that my interest in law was kindled.  

My Journey Into Law 

From a young age, I've always had a desire to help people. The law seemed like a perfect path to channel my passion. With my skills in writing and speaking, I saw an opportunity to make a difference, to stand up for those who couldn't do so themselves. This sparked my journey into the world of law—a journey that has been both challenging and rewarding. 

Education & Experience  

For my undergraduate studies, I attended Duke University. It was the university's prestigious reputation and commitment to academic excellence that drew me in. Following my time at Duke, I decided to stay closer to home for my law degree and attended The Florida State University College of Law. Both institutions provided an enriching environment that nurtured my skills and shaped me into the attorney I am today.  

Before establishing my own law practice, I served as a criminal justice attorney. During this time, I worked as both an Assistant Public Defender and an Assistant State Attorney. These positions gave me invaluable insights into the legal system in Florida and the importance of diligent representation. 

Walking in My Clients' Shoes 

In 1987, I shifted my focus to workers' compensation law, a pivot inspired by my direct encounter with the system. My personal journey has mirrored that of many of my clients—I experienced the denial of a workers' compensation claim by my employer and insurance company. This compelled me to seek the support of a workers' compensation attorney and advocate for my rights. My experience has granted me an unparalleled understanding of my clients' struggles, enabling me to empathize deeply and serve my community effectively. 

I'm not afraid of a challenge. I'm ready to fight for the benefits you deserve.

Beyond the Courtroom 

In addition to my work as an attorney, I'm passionate about sharing knowledge. I regularly lecture on workers' compensation topics and have been a guest lecturer at Barry University School of Law. I've also served two three-year terms on The Florida Bar Grievance Committee, assisting in investigating lawyer misconduct. I believe that this commitment to continuous learning and ethical practice enhances my ability to serve my clients better.

A Career of Accolades & Honors 

I've been honored with several awards throughout my career, including the Meritorious Public Service Award from The Florida Bar, the Martindale Hubbell AV Preeminent Attorney accolade, and the "Above and Beyond" Award from Florida Workers' Advocates. These recognitions serve as a testament to my continued dedication and commitment to the field of law. 

More specifically, one of the most significant highlights of my career was serving as a Judge of Compensation Claims from 1992 to 1997. This role provided me with an in-depth understanding of workers' compensation cases from a judge's perspective, knowledge that I now use to better represent my clients.
