Kaysia (pronounced Kay-see-ah) M. Earley is known for achieving exceptional results. As a Christian Attorney whose moral compass is grounded in faith and fellowship, she has gained a well-deserved reputation as a fierce litigator who zealously fights for her clients’ fundamental rights. Founding attorney for Earley Law Firm, PLLC, she focuses on both criminal and civil litigation and is a strong advocate for her clients without trading in her Christian values. Background: The middle child of seven siblings, she was raised by a single mother, and grew up in the inner-city Miami neighborhood. Kaysia is a first-generation college graduate and the first in her family to earn a professional degree. Kaysia has exceeded the expectations of what someone would expect from someone raised in an underserved community, coupled with the rigors of a single parent household. During Kaysia’s senior year in college, she was arrested and charged with felony embezzlement as a result of discounting merchandise while working at a shoe store. Kaysia spent time in jail, while pregnant and for a moment, thought her dreams of graduating from college and pursuing her love of politics, had come to an end. It was during her time in daily solitary confinement, in which Kaysia gave her life to Christ and made a choice to change the trajectory of her life and for her unborn child. She promised she would never do anything again in life which would bring embarrassment to her family. Years later, Kaysia is a revered attorney who has compassion on the clients she defends and credits her time locked away as the catalyst that drives her compassion towards people and clients. Education/Litigation: She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science at Howard University, Washington, DC in 2004. She earned her Juris Doctor degree from St. Thomas University School of Law, Miami, FL in 2013. Kaysia has practiced both as a government attorney and in the private sector. As a former Assistant Public Defender, Kaysia effectively managed a caseload of 180–220 clients, through all phases of the judicial process. She has tried over 100 non-jury and jury trials, ranging from first-degree felonies to misdemeanors, and won dismissals in over 230 other cases. During law school, Kaysia clerked for the Honorable Judge Andrew Siegel, of the 17th Judicial Circuit. Prior to attending law school, Kaysia worked as a paralegal specialist with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and various practice areas including, Intellectual Property, White Collar, Tax, and Patent Prosecution. Additionally, her experience as a congressional intern on Capitol Hill provided valuable insight in Politics and Law & Public Policy. Community Service: As an active member in her profession and community, Kaysia is a firm believer of the biblical principle, “for unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required” (Luke 12:48 KJV). In recognition of that, Kaysia has been and continues to be actively involved in her community as a lecturer at her church, local homeless shelters, detention centers, and universities, on topics relating to criminal law, trial practice, and oral presentation skills. She is very passionate about empowering youth for generations to come. Family: Kaysia resides in Sunrise, Florida and is a loving wife to her husband David Earley of 16 years, and the proud mother of four children (one daughter (9) and three sons (15, 12, & 6)).
