After practicing law with many prestigious law firms in Central Florida I opened my own law firm in 1998. I made the decision to open my own firm so that I would have unfettered ability to provide clients with the level of representation and customer care that I believe each client is entitled to. I have created a boutique style law firm that focuses on client care. My firm has been structured with the specific objective of allowing clients the ability to actively engage in their case through ensuring that each client has frequent communication with their legal team and involvement with the strategies deigned to meet each client's specific desires.
It is my mission to aggressively represent my clients in a fashion that assures they are afforded the full extent of their legal rights, while focusing on their specific goals and needs.
