About Me

After graduatign from Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville, Florida, I went on to serve in the U.S. Army. I lived in Germany and Arizona before returning to Florida. Prior to attending law school, I was a paralegal and managed law firms.  I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Business Management in 2004 and earned my Juris Doctorate in 2007.  After passing the Florida Bar, I began working as an attorney for David B. Sacks, P.A., where I practiced in the areas of Employment and Labor Law, Workers' Compensation, Unemployment Benefit Denials, Discrimination, Employment Benefits, Personal Injury, and Wrongful Termination. 


 


In January 2010, I opened my law practice focusing on employee rights (discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation, and wage and hour claims), personal injury, workers' compensation, and short-term and long-term benefits denials, and unemployment benefit denials.


 


I also teach Business Law at the Jacksonville, Florida ground campus for the University of Phoenix and  Unemployment Compensation Benefits Law at Florida Coastal School of Law. 


 


I try to provide clients with personal representation. In some offices, you never get to speak to your attorney.  In my office, I answer the phone as much as my assistant does.  This is why I chose to market my law firm by the statement  "Dedicated, Caring, Thorough, and Aggressive representation you can trust."  I may not tell you what you want to hear but, I will tell you what you need to hear about your case.


 


I look forward to providing you with outstanding legal service.
