Zeshawn Mumtaz was born and raised in North Miami Beach, Florida to a family which encouraged integrity, working hard, and giving back to the community. As a high school student at North Miami Beach Senior High School, he fostered these beliefs into his everyday work ethic which resulted in him graduating in the top 1% of his high school class and earning an academic scholarship to his dream school - the University of Miami.

In college, Zeshawn delved deep into his passion for science and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. Although, he had a degree from his dream school, Zeshawn felt like he wasn’t contributing to help society as much as he believed that he could. Taking this into consideration, Zeshawn decided to become a biochemist in South Florida so that he could help research and develop medical products that would help aid his community at large. One way he did this was by working on issues relating to protein and enzyme biochemistry. During his time as a biochemist, Zeshawn found himself spending a great amount of time reading up on the law and its impact in his area of practice.

A few years later, Zeshawn found himself enrolling in law school because he believed that it was a better application of his desire to help his community. During law school, Zeshawn was actively involved in many student organizations and became President of the Intellectual Property Law Society at Nova Southeastern University.

After graduating and getting sworn into the Florida Bar, Zeshawn continued his desire to be active in the community and became involved with the Florida Bar. He is an alumnus of the Florida Bar Leadership Academy and was recently appointed to the Florida Bar Client’s Security Fund Committee. When not practicing law or assisting the Florida Bar, you can find him helping the political landscape of Florida. In the past, Zeshawn has been involved in several political campaigns including the campaign to elect Charlie Crist for Governor and recently, the campaign to elect Andrew Gillum for Governor.
