Tristan Sanders earned his law degree from Stetson University College of Law in 1991, where he was an editorial member of The Stetson Law Review. Tristan grew up in and around the law, as his father and grandfather were both Orlando trial attorneys. When asked why family law? Tristan’s response is “Because that is where I feel I can truly make a difference.” Tristan has selflessly devoted his practice to helping families struggling through divorce with the goal of minimizing conflict and providing a framework where parents can effectively co-parent. Tristan has served families as a mediator and as a court appointed Guardian Ad Litem for children. He is experienced at bringing closure to often emotionally heartbreaking family disputes.
Prior to entering into private practice, Tristan served as an Assistant State’s Attorney. He was also employed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement after earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology from Florida State University.
Tristan is involved in The Florida Bar’s Family Law Section, has served on the Central Florida’s Family Law Inns of Court, and has been recognized by his professional peers as one of Florida’s Elite Family Law attorneys in the attorney edition of Florida Trend.
Tristan and Silvia have two children. They are active members of the St. James Cathedral Church Community. Tristan enjoys serving as a FOCCUS minister; a ministry devoted to preparing engaged couples to enter into marriage. Tristan also serves his community as both a Board Member and Tutor for Outreach Love, an organization devoted to loving, nurturing, and tutoring kids at risk in our community. He also volunteers his time to IDignity, an organization that serves our local community by assisting individuals in obtaining the necessary paperwork for ID cards, driver’s licenses, and other forms of necessary identification.
Tristan Sanders is also a member of The Collaborative Family Law Group of Central Florida.
