SERVICE TO COMMUNITY
Giving back to the community is a priority for Sema. She has given free public presentations on Fathers’ Rights and Immigrants’ Rights. Sema also contributes to the legal community, and in 2015 her article “The Pitfall of International Love” was published, discussing the complications that can arise in marriage with non-U.S. citizens. She was an active member of the Stann Givens Family Law Inn of Court here in Tampa for many years.
Attorney Sema takes time to mentor young attorneys who reach out to her and guides them in her area of practice. She also frequently makes herself available to answer family law and immigration law related questions when more seasoned fellow attorneys (who practice in other areas of law) call in need of help. To Sema the practice of law is a passion—not a job.
