In 2002, while away at college, Luby’s family suffered a tragedy. Her father was involved in an accident, and they needed an attorney to defend them against a devastating blow. They hired Mr. Vincent, who worked tirelessly to help Luby’s family through this tough time. It was clear this was more than just a job for him; he upheld the integrity of the law with genuine compassion, which made them feel like he was a part of the family. It was the kindness and compassion shown to her family by Mr. Vincent that helped shape Luby to become the lawyer she is today.
Luby always knew she wanted to help people. As the second oldest child out of 5 kids, helping to care for her younger siblings introduced her to the life of truly caring for and helping others. Growing up in a Christian home fortified the belief to help those in need with love and compassion. Even at a young age, it didn’t take her long to realize helping others was a responsibility that would one day become her life. Originally, Luby went to school to study medicine to fulfill this drive to help others. She discovered medicine was not the route for her but still had the need to provide assistance to others—so she switched her major to practice law. With her passion of helping others and a growing reputation of being a fierce opponent in any argument, the decision to practice law was easy.
Luby graduated from the University of South Florida in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications. She earned her law degree from Stetson College of Law in 2011 and she was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2012.
Luby first started practicing law as a volunteer at St. Michael’s Legal Center for Women and Children. There she became very familiar with family law, and in 2013, she went from being a volunteer to part-time associate attorney; continuing to represent clients with family, guardianship, bankruptcy, and foreclosure matters. Luby decided she wanted to learn more, so she accepted another part-time position as an associate attorney with the law firm Father’s Rights.
When Luby’s second son, Alexander “Papou” Myrthil, was diagnosed with (ALL) Leukemia in March of 2014, she took some time off from practicing law to committee all her time to caring for her son. Luby returned to practicing law a year later.
In 2017, she opened her practice, Myrthil’s Law, where she could focus on Family, Estate Planning, Personal Injury, and Probate law.
