After getting a taste of what it was like to be a litigator, she continued sharpening her litigation skills at the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office as an Assistant State Attorney. As an ASA she was responsible for representing the State and Victim’s in thousands of cases involving crimes ranging from driving under the influence to violent crimes involving deadly weapons and serious bodily injury. After her exemplary performance, Chloe was selected as a Division Leader in the Misdemeanor Unit where she oversaw and trained incoming attorneys. Chloe has the experience of sitting as both a first chair and a second chair in dozens of jury trials. While at the State she was known for returning a 10-minute verdict of guilty on multiple counts. Chloe is now practicing with Williams, Leininger & Cosby, P.A. on the BI Litigation Team.
When she isn’t fiercely defending clients at WLC, Chloe enjoys being in the outdoors with her Italian Greyhound-Chihuahua and lending a philanthropic hand in the sustainable development community.
