Three Thirteen Law was founded by Mandi Clay, Esq., a seasoned litigator and real estate agent who has represented clients in state and federal court, as well as in agency actions and private arbitration. We handle a wide variety of subject matters, but our passion lies in the fight for equality. Mandi is a vocal advocate for those with mental and physical disabilities, often speaking out for those with mental illness. She is also active in the fight for gender and racial equality, and speaks on those topics as well.
A dedicated problem solver, Mandi has experience in a variety of subject matters, including labor & employment, real estate, contracts, intellectual property, and class actions. Mandi has experienced the practice of law from both sides of the bench, having clerked for U.S. District Judge Gregory A. Presnell and U.S. District Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell, both in the Middle District of Florida. She prides herself on being efficient and responsive to her clients and is dedicated to providing practical advice tailored to fit each client’s specific goals.
Mandi truly has a talent for understanding and explaining the law and its nuances in ways that most law school professors and supervising attorneys never could. Her ability to adjust her writing to her audience and articulate complicated arguments in easily digestible facets is greatly admired.
Within the legal community, Mandi is well respected among both practitioners and the judiciary. She began her pro bono work in 2008, her first year in private practice, by representing a teenager who was shot in the back by police officers, giving her immediate trial experience.
Mandi is also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Court Mediator and U.S. District Court Mediator.
Most of Mandi’s free time is spent working with various community organizations and being a very invested Auntie to about 25 munchkins.
