About Me

After serving in the US Army as a Russian language qualified signals intelligence analyst,I recieved my degree in Russian language and Literature at SUNY@Oswego. Fromthere,I attended St.Thomas U Law School in Miami. My First semester, I tied for Top student in my class, and won the 1L Moot Court competition.


 


From then on, I concentrated on legal internships. I worked for the Hon. Lenore Nesbitt, in Federal Court in Miami. The next year I interned at the Miami Federal Defenders Office, I was fortunate to working under the supervision of Paul Rashkind, one of the most brilliant criminal defense lawyers in the United States.


 


For my first paid legal job, I worked at the Orange County Public Defenders office. After four years, I left and formed my own law firm.


 


It is my belief that it is a great privilege to defend the US Constitution, and my clients. I have gone to trial hundreds of times, and stand by ready for trial at any time

    I endorse this lawyer. I've known Roger forever, great attorney. He's always fighting the system--his focus is on fighting the system--and he has the skills and intellect to defend anything the government throws at him. I would trust Roger to defend my friends and family, you should too!
