Miami Business Lawyer
Born and raised in Russia, I initially came to the United States to achieve English language proficiency while completing high school education, and later stayed to obtain a university degree, and to become an attorney. I earned my undergraduate degree in Political Science, with honors, from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, and my law degree from the University of Miami School of Law.
In 2013, after seven years of practicing law at Florida’s top law firms, I established my own firm, Olesia Y. Belchenko, P.A., offering services in the areas of litigation and business transactions, with an emphasis on serving entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes. Today, I primarily serve the legal needs of South Florida’s Russian-speaking business community including as a Florida co-counsel to law firms located in other U.S. states and abroad.
During my years as an attorney, I have built strong working relationships with other members of the legal community. My dedication to the legal profession and my clients has been recognized by my peers and clients.
My skills have been rated as “superb” on Avvo (an attorney search and legal advice website), and I was consistently selected as a Rising Star by Florida Super Lawyers (a rating service for outstanding lawyers) every year from 2014 through 2018.
I am proud to provide pro bono services to qualifying low-income individuals through Dade Legal Aid’s Put Something Back Project. Moreover, I am currently an adjunct professor of business law at the University of Miami School of Business Administration.
In the past, I served as member of a Grievance Committee of The Florida Bar, investigating complaints filed against attorneys; on the Board of Directors of the Dade County Bar Association (Florida’s largest voluntary bar association), including its Executive Committee; and as chair of the International Law Committee.
I am admitted to practice in Florida state courts, as well as the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
