About Me

I am originally from Ohio, where I lived for 27 years.  I graduated from the University of Toledo with a BBA in Management and Finance.  I graduated from Ohio Northern University Petite College of Law in 2004.  Due to my interest in tax law, I went on to receive my LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Miami School of Law in 2005.  Only  a very small percentage of attorneys in the United States go on to attend and complete the LL.M. in Taxation Program.

After graduation, I worked at The Andersen Firm, which provided estate planning and legal services to a broad base of clients in multiple states.  Through hard work and an extensive knowledge base, I served clients throughout the State of Florida and also co-counseled with firms out of State to serve the needs of additional clients.

I have lectured throughout the United States to individuals, business owners, businesses, financial planners, and CPAs on tax, probate, guardianship, and estate planning issues.

In my free time I like to relax with my family, golf, watch movies and go see the Jacksonville Jaguars during football season.
