After almost a year of clerking for the Law Office of Russell Knight, Dustin Sedor has joined our ranks as an associate attorney.  Here’s Dustin introducing himself:

My name is Dustin Sedor, and I was born in Upstate New York, specifically, Auburn, New York. Auburn is a small, family-oriented city.

My interest in the study of law began at an early age as my father is an attorney in Auburn, New York, and I volunteered in the local Youth Court to assist troubled youths in taking accountability for their actions and whilst giving them an opportunity to rehabilitate themselves.

For my undergraduate degree, I attended Syracuse University, and I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology.

After two years working as a Dental Assistant and attending Drexel University’s Graduate Program for Interdisciplinary Health Sciences, I decided that I wanted to focus my educational career toward the study of law.

I decided to move full time to Naples, Florida to be able to attend Ave Maria School of Law in the Fall of 2016.

While at Ave Maria School of Law, it was my pleasure to give back to the marvelous Naples community through numerous different volunteering events.

Ave Maria School of Law gave me the opportunity to assist the disadvantaged through the Ave Maria Tax Clinic and the Ave Maria Wills, Trusts, and Estates Clinic.

I was honored to be able to give back to the brave men and women who give their time and risk their lives through the Wills for Heroes Event associated with Legal Aid Service of Collier County.

Much like when I was a teenager with Youth Court, the Neighborhood Accountability Board gave me the opportunity to assist troubled youths in making amends with their communities whilst rehabilitating themselves.

The Immigration Clinic gave us the opportunity to help individuals in fear of being deported from this amazing country against their will.

Upon graduating from Ave Maria School of Law, I started working at the Law Office of Russell Knight as a Law Clerk.

While maintaining my clerking duties, I studied and sat for the February 2020 Florida Bar Examination. I passed the examination, and I was admitted to practice law by the Florida Bar as of April 16, 2020.

I have been involved exclusively with Family Law for about two years now. Family Law has been a worthwhile path. I think both my upbringing in a family centric town as well as my involvement with programs like Youth Court and the Neighborhood Accountability Board have helped both guide me and prepare me toward a career in family law. Being able to help families resolve their issues with favorable and amicable methods is truly rewarding.
