Starlett Massey

Attorney, Founding Shareholder

Starlett Massey is the founding shareholder of Massey Law Group. She founded MLG because she wanted to create an alternative law firm model based upon the principles of fairness, equality, and transparency. She understands that happy lawyers who are fairly compensated and treated with respect will deliver the highest quality of legal services to clients.

Starlett gained her experience and perspective from her position as the managing partner of the Department of Banking and Real Property at McCumber, Daniels, Buntz, Hartig, Puig & Ross, P.A. She specializes in corporate transactions and litigation, real property law, creditor’s rights in bankruptcy and foreclosure, and tax deed sales.

In 1998, Starlett graduated cum laude from the Florida State University with a degree in English. She is a 2007 graduate of the Florida State University College of Law. She is licensed to practice in Florida, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, and is licensed and practices in all of the state and federal courts of the State of Florida.

She is a member of the St. Petersburg Bar Association, the Hillsborough County Bar Association, the Pinellas County Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyer, and serves on the Florida Bar Committee for Diversity and Inclusion. In 2009, Starlett received the Outstanding Pro Bono Service Award from the Supreme Court of Florida, recognizing her work on behalf of the indigent. She has been recognized as a Rising Star in Business Litigation by peer review through the Florida Super Lawyers from 2013 through 2017.

Starlett is committed to her personal and professional growth with a focus on diversity, racial equity, and inclusion. Her vision for MLG stands in second position only to her dedication to parenting her son and his development as a young man committed to fun, play, and the principles of integrity, equality, and community responsibility.
