Llamilet is the Executive Director of the Amara Legal Center, a nonprofit providing legal services for anyone harmed through their involvement in commercial sex. Most of Amara’s clients are survivors of sex trafficking. As the daughter of formerly undocumented immigrants, Llamilet became a lawyer to provide a voice for the marginalized. Prior to her current role, Llamilet was an attorney at the Office of the Public Defender in Prince George’s County, Maryland, where she represented hundreds of clients from misdemeanor theft to murder. Llamilet made sure that her clients’ experiences were conveyed and that her clients were seen as more than the charges before the Court. In her current role, Llamilet seeks to provide excellent legal representation, connect survivors with vital social services, and raise public awareness of the legal issues facing clients.

Llamilet holds a J.D. from Lewis & Clark Law School and a BA from Dickinson College. Llamilet is licensed to practice law in Maryland where she is also actively involved in several bar associations. She is Treasurer for the Prince George’s County Bar Association, Board Member of the Maryland Hispanic Bar Association, and Chair of the Bench-Bar Section Council for the Maryland State Bar Association. In her spare time, she coaches mock trial at DuVal High School and leads the Ending Homelessness Ministry at her church campus.
