Renee Torpy is an Injunction for Protection attorney at Serene Harbor, a certified domestic violence shelter, where she represents women, men, and children in obtaining restraining orders against their abusers.

She was born into a military family and her father’s last duty station was at Patrick Air Force Base. This is when Torpy attended Satellite High School, fell in love with Brevard County, and decided this is where she wanted to stay. She continued her education at Brevard Community College, the University of Central Florida, and Barry Law School.

After graduation, Torpy started her legal career at the Public Defender’s office and then transferred to the State Attorney’s office which gives her a unique perspective of clearly seeing both sides of the case. Wanting to focus on helping victims, Renee transitioned to her current position with Serene Harbor.

Torpy and her husband, Doug married in 2011. They have two amazing daughters and are excited for them to grow up in Brevard County as they did. On the weekends the family can be found enjoying everything the county has to offer from bioluminescence in the river to watching launches on the beach.

Volunteer and Community Involvement

Torpy started at Brevard Community College through dual enrollment while attending Satellite High school. After graduation, she went on to the University of Central Florida and earned her Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies specializing in Criminal Law and Individual Liberties.

With her love for the law, she then commuted to Barry University School of Law and earned her Juris Doctorate and a High Honors Certificate in Trial Advocacy.

Torpy began her legal career as an Assistant Public Defender and then transferred to become an Assistant State Attorney in the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit. During this time, she handled several hundred active cases from misdemeanors to felonies in both County and Circuit Court.

In 2020, Torpy became an Injunction for Protection attorney at Serene Harbor to focus on helping victims of domestic, dating, sexual violence, and stalking. Renee has conducted many criminal and civil trials during her legal career. Additionally, she has had law articles published in the Brazilian Journal of International Law and the Journal of Maritime Law and Commerce.

Torpy volunteers as the Chair for Brevard’s Domestic Violence Task Force in which she keeps law enforcement, advocates, and attorneys up to date on new case law and resources for victims.

She also volunteered to be on the committee to help Melbourne City Ballet Theatre to market and raise funds to directly support two classical ballet Productions at the Maxwell King Center for the Performing Arts with the National Ballet Theatre of Ukraine.
