Ada HammondAda Hammond’s practice of law began in 1981, with her admission to the Florida Bar.  She earned her J.D. from the University of Florida in 1980, with honors, upon completing undergraduate studies there and receiving a B.A. degree, with honors, in 1978.

Throughout most of her career, Ada Hammond has focused her practice on civil trial law, primarily in the areas of labor and employment law, commercial and insurance litigation, personal injury, and appellate work at both the state and federal level. Prior to joining a private practice in 1984 as an associate and then partner, she held the position of Law Clerk to the Honorable John H. Moore, II, U.S. District Judge, Middle District of Florida – an experience she feels broadened her knowledge of the law and helped prepare her for a career as a civil litigator.

Committed to her profession, as well as her clients, Ada Hammond is an active member of a number of professional organizations, including the Hispanic Bar Association of Northeast Florida, where she holds the position of President Elect. Other associations include The Florida Bar, the Chester Bedell Inns of Court and the Jacksonville Bar Association, where she is the chair of the Immigration and Naturalization Committee. She also served as President of the Federal Bar Association of Jacksonville from 1989-1990. Civic participation has also been a hallmark of her career; she is a member of the Jacksonville Women's Network and is a member of Leadership Jacksonville, class of 1994.
