About me

I am a criminal defense attorney practicing in St. Augustine, Florida.  My entire practice is devoted to criminal defense.  I also handle cases in all of the surrounding counties which include Putnam County, Flagler County, Clay County and Duval County.  I have represented clients successfully on nearly every type of criminal charge. 


Before going into private practice, I spent 7 years as a prosecutor in St. Augustine.  I specialized in the prosecution of cruelty to animal cases.  I prosecuted all the Cruelty to Animal cases in my jurisdiction for more than 6 years.  I was also selected to prosecute all the DUI Homicide cases in St. Augustine from 2000-2002.
