Emina Memic is a Paralegal at Richert Quarles P.A. She received her Associate in Science in Paralegal Studies from St. Petersburg College in Clearwater, Florida in May 2018. She went on to earn her Bachelor’s in Applied Science in Paralegal Studies at St. Petersburg College in May of 2020. She is also a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Golden Key International Honor Society, and Legal Studies Society at St. Petersburg College.
Emina is from Chicago, Illinois, but has lived in Florida for most of her life. In high school, she was unsure of her career path. Her family wanted her to go into the medical field, but she knew it was a career she did not want to pursue. She enjoyed helping others and wanted to find a way to do that without being in the medical field. When it was time to enroll in classes at St. Petersburg College, a friend recommended she take the Intro to Paralegalism course. After this course, she took a few more paralegal directed courses and decided she wanted to finish the program. In the future, Emina would like to attend Stetson Law School to further her legal education.
