About Me

I am the son of Cuban immigrants.  My parents taught me the value of hard work and dedication.  I bring these values to each case.  I have been practicing law for the last sixteen years.  Throughout that time, I have had the privilege of working with many wonderful attorneys.  These experiences have taught me that each case is different and must be addressed according to the particular circumstances.
