Faequa Khan

Speaking in Opening Main Stage Conversation: Leaving a Legacy at 8:30 am for the Main Stage track.

Faequa is a first-generation immigrant and a first-generation college graduate and has come to appreciate the American Dream in a unique way. This experience has shaped her life choices in both her work and personal decisions.
She brings experience in real estate transactions, civil litigation, especially real property litigation, and probate in both state and federal court to this firm. She graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and International Studies. While she studied at UM, she worked at real estate boutique firm in Miami Lakes, FL. There, she gained experience in both residential and commercial real estate, though her focus was primarily on first time home buyers. Most recently, she has opened her own title insurance company to ensure that her clients receive the best standard of care possible.

After UM, she attended the University of Florida Levin College of Law. While pursuing her Juris Doctorate, she worked as a law clerk in an insurance defense firm in Gainesville, FL, thereby broadening her research and writing skills. She also interned in the chambers of General Magistrate Susan Miller-Jones of the 8th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida.
After graduating from UF with her Juris Doctorate, she worked at a small boutique firm in Coral Gables. She researched and wrote state appellate briefs and helped in real estate transactions. Prior to joining The Law Offices of Daryl L. Jones, P.A., she participated in the fellowship program and was a fellow for the Honorable Paul C. Huck in the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida. She’s had the distinct honor of serving as the President of the Florida Muslim Bar Association as we seek to provide diversity, equity and inclusion training to our fellow attorneys and judges.

Apart from her legal work, she is also very involved in her community. She is a Leadership Florida Connect Class VII graduate. She also volunteers her time to Junior League Miami, an organization of women who give back to the community through different projects focusing on women and children at risk. This past year, she sat on both the Board of Directors and the Executive Management Team of the Junior League of Miami as the Chief Operating Officer. She also sits on the corporate board of HOBY (Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership) South Florida, an organization geared towards developing leadership skills in high school students across south Florida.

She also serves as a board member on the alumni association for Gulliver Schools, her high school. The work on the alumni association has been so meaningful to her as I can share a real-life perspective of this prep school and the students. This is her way of giving back to a school that provided her with a scholarship and opened many doors to her and her immigrant family.
Her work ethic demands that she never give up and she will always ensure you receive fair treatment under the law. She will always work to ensure that you receive a solution that exceeds your expectations.
