Legal Advisor 2015-2017
Simona Fioravanti was born in Rome and graduated in Jurisprudence from Università La Sapienza of Rome. Her long time law practice is in both Criminal and Civil Law with a focus on immigration and family law. In 2004 she moved to the United States where she worked for an important American Holding Company in Pennsylvania. There she attended Penn State University's Dickinson School of Law, receiving her Master's Degree in 2011. She then worked as a clerk for a Judge in Dauphin County which provided her the opportunity to improve her knowledge of both juvenile and criminal law. Following her move back to Rome she was legal adviser for one of the major international financial lenders, managing non-performing loans acquired by noted Italian banks, among other activities. She now has her own law firm with a practice in immigration law, providing assistance to foreigners who are unfamiliar with both language and Italian law, as well as specializing in family law and criminal law. She loves spending time with her dog and taking her for long walks, traveling around the world and swimming early in the morning.
