Biography

Jacqueline Garcell is a senior partner and active trial attorney in maritime law for Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. She routinely handles passengers’ personal injury, sexual assault and wrongful death claims, as well as non-maritime personal injury claims. Ms. Garcell is the fastest attorney to ever make partner at the firm, having been promoted to the partner position after being with us for a decade.

Ms. Garcell has helped settle hundreds of cases on behalf of both cruise ship passengers and crew members. She achieved one of the Top 50 Personal Injury Verdicts in Florida in 2017 — this rare and incredibly impressive feat encompasses all personal injury verdicts, not just those in the maritime law field.

In working as a maritime lawyer, Ms. Garcell is able to help clients who might otherwise feel as though they have no recourse. She believes that it’s important to be transparent and communicate to the client what strategy is likely to lead to a favorable result.

Ms. Garcell first began her legal career as a paralegal, after graduating from the University of Miami. While attending the Florida International University College of Law, she was hired as a summer associate by our firm in 2010. She subsequently worked as a law clerk until she joined the firm as a licensed attorney in 2013. Finally, in 2019, Ms. Garcell earned her a place as a partner at Lipcon.

Ms. Garcell is admitted to practice in all Florida state courts, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida, and the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. She is a member of the Florida Bar, the Dade County Bar Association, and the Cuban American Bar Association. She is also fluent in Spanish.
