About Me

I am a board certified lawyer representing businesses, individuals, general contractors and other construction industry parties in litigation, arbitration and mediation for 25 years. I am an expert on the lien law in Florida and I forgot more about construction law, than most attorneys will ever know.  I work hard for my clients and they appreciate my efforts.  I have drafted and negotiated hundreds of contracts and understand all aspects of business and construction litigation.  I have handled many jury trials, bench trials and countless successful summary judgments.  I have significant and successful experience handling appeals as well.  I am "AV" rated by Martindale-Hubble, the highest possible rating by the oldest and most respected lawyer rating system.  I have also been awarded Florida Super Laywyer, Florida Trend Legal Elite, Oralndo's Top Lawyer by Orlando Home & Leisure, along with other similar awards.
