A member of the Florida Bar, Ms. Koltnow was recently accepted into the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance-a national, invitation-only organization committed to furthering high standards of litigation and claims management in pursuit of client defense.

She is admitted to practice in all Florida trial and appellate courts, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida.
