Originally from Miami, FL, Luis Herrera has always had a passion for the law. He got his first taste of what life as a lawyer would be a member of his high school's mock trial team at Felix Varela Senior High. Later, during his time at Florida International University, he remained involved with that team as its coach, educating and equipping high school students with the tools necessary to compete at high levels. His love of the law brought him to Central Florida to attend law school at Barry University where he quickly made a name for himself. He was a part of two national and one state championship wins, and won two best advocate awards as well. He was the law school's trial team president his final year and was awarded the schools best advocate award in 2015. He is now one of the coaches for Barry Law.
