Attorney Beth Hittel joined the Disparti Law Group, P.A. in January of 2011, focusing on a practice devoted to helping people navigate the complicated world of social security and disability benefits. Prior to this practice, she worked as a law clerk representing corporate clients initiating and processing foreclosure proceedings. “I didn’t feel like I was helping people as much as I imagined I would in the legal field,” she says. “I get to help people in this line of work, and that is what is important to me”.
Hittel graduated summa cum laude from the University of Central Florida in 2005 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a concentration in Finance. While at UCF, her favorite professor was an attorney, who encouraged to go to law school herself. She then went on to earn her Juris Doctor degree from Florida Coastal in 2007. One of her proudest accomplishments during law school was earning a Pro Bono Certificate for her volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity.
Hittel has also worked as a paralegal studies professor at Rasmussen College in New Port Richey. “I come from a family of educators, so teaching is in my blood,” she says.
Hittel sees herself as more than an attorney and she has a passion for working with people whose lives have been altered due to a variety of unfortunate circumstances. “We are advocates and counselors. We are coaches, cheerleaders and friends,” she says. “We make the process easier. We bring comfort and support.”
Hittel comes from a large family and in her spare time, she enjoys spending most of her time with them. She is a Pasco County native and is married to her high school sweetheart. They have two children, and enjoy most of their time outdoors and active.
