About me

“I try to see and hear things from my client's point of view. Once I earn their trust, my clients come to know that they can count on me to put their best case forward, as long as it is truthful. When I believe in a client's case, I will go the extra mile and then some to achieve what I believe they are entitled to under the law.” 

I received my legal education from the University of Florida School of Law, where I graduated with honors in 1986.  Following graduation, I worked as an assistant to a judge in the Fifth Diistrict Court of Appeals, which decides all appeals for the Central Florida area.  Afterwards,  I worked with several large lawfirms, until I started my own law firm in 2006.  I enjoy practicing as a small firm so that I can provide direct and personal service to my clients.  I  believe that being someone's lawyer is a special relationship based on trust.  I truely enjoy using my skills, knowledge, and expertise to help my clients resolve what may be the most serious problem that they will ever have.  

I am board certified as an expert in civil trial law by the Florida Bar.  I have extensive experience litigating cases involving professional malpractice, personal injuries, insurance disputes, real estate disputes, and business disputes.  I have represented clients seeking compensation, and I have also defended clients who are being sued.  My experience in representing clients on both sides of a case gives me a deeper understanding of how to achieve the best outcome for my clients, whether it be a favorable settlemnent, or a victory in the courtroom.
