About me

I have been practicing law in the areas of personal injury and wrongful death trial law for 27 years, 24 of which have been in the Jacksonville , Fl. area. However, I routinly handle cases in various parts of Florida. I have been very active in the Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra communities socially and professionally and enjoy a strong relationship with the Jacksonville Bar and the Fourth Circuit Judiciary. I am currently President of the Jacksonville Trial Lawyers Association, now known as the Jacksonville Justice Association.


 I have two college age children and my wife of 27 years is an attorney in our firm. I enjoy fishing, hunting and shooting. I exercise most every day to keep the stress down. Most importantly, I love what I do and I love the competition and challenge with each case and client I accept.


I handle complex injury and death cases and focus on maximizing the damages in each case with a knowledge and understanding of anatomy and medicine.

I often find cases in situations you might not expect. I am happy to talk to you about your situation to determine how we can best help you.
