Benitez Law Group, PL / Pulse of Orlando, Inc.
An Orlando native, Aly attended Lake Mary High School where she played soccer and was named an NSCAA All-American. After leaving Orlando to play soccer for the University of Virginia, Aly knew she would one day return to the City Beautiful. In fact, after law school, Aly turned down a position as a JAG in the United States Air Force to follow her heart and make a difference in the Central Florida community.
In 2007, Aly joined her uncle, Gus Benitez, to form Benitez Law Group, PL. Since then, she has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox affiliates as a legal expert and has received several professional awards for her legal and pro-bono work. In 2013, Aly published her first book “Against The Grain”, which hit 3 Best-Seller lists. Aly prides herself on aggressively representing clients and making herself available to them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. “Clients Are Family” is not just a professional motto, but something that Aly truly believes and practices.
Recently, the tragic events at Pulse Nightclub inspired Aly to form the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, “Pulse of Orlando, Inc.”. Pulse owner, Barbara Poma, is a personal friend and client of the Benitez Law Group. As founder and Board President, Aly has worked around the clock to ensure that Pulse of Orlando is filling the immediate financial needs of not only Pulse employees, but survivors and victims’ families. On June 30, 2016, Pulse of Orlando distributed $28,500 to victims and were the first organization to distribute funds. In addition to being the first non-profit distributing funds, the all-volunteer organization also provides victim navigation by helping survivors and families apply with the Orlando United Assistance Center and to locate additional resources for them.
