About Me

I grew up in Southern California and attended college at the University of California, Irvine. At UCI, I graduated summa cum laude, top one percent of his class, while majoring in Political Science and minoring in History.

After college, I attended the University of Florida, Levin College of Law, where he graduated magna cum laude with honors. During my time at the University of Florida, I focused exclusively on criminal law practice. I interned with the Honorable Daniel Sleet in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in Hillsborough County and also helped defend juvenile’s charged with crimes in the Eighth Judicial Circuit in Alachua County.

After law school, my passion for criminal law landed me at the State Attorney’s Office in the Ninth Judicial Circuit in Orlando, FL. While at the State Attorney’s Office, I prosecuted thousands of cases in circuit, county, and juvenile court in both Orange and Osceola County. I have extensive knowledge in traffic, misdemeanor, juvenile, and felony cases and have prosecuted cases ranging from simple traffic tickets to complicated firearms cases involving minimum mandatory sentences.

As a former prosecutor I know how your case will be handled from the moment of arrest. Let me put my experience in your hands when it comes to fighting your case! Contact me today for a free consultation with an experienced and tested former prosecutor.
