About me

With more than 25 years of experience practicing law in Central Florida, I zealously represent my clients with integrity, dedication, and personal concern.  I have built a strong reputation with my clients, colleagues, opposing counsel, and the Courts of Orange, Osceola, Lake, Brevard, Volusia, and Seminole counties and throughout the state of Florida.


I am committed to my clients, their well being and their goals.  I see success as a journey and not as a destination.  I care deeply about my clients, their children and their future where they can not only survive the difficult family law process, but also rise to a level of success and significance.


If reconciliation is possible, I will support my clients' efforts to achieve that goal.  If I am called on to represent my client’s interests in Court, Mediation or elsewhere, I will be a zealous advocate while keeping in mind the best interests of the minor children.


I am active in the community and in my church.  I frequently speak at various Divorce Care groups in Central Florida and I have focused my time, efforts, and practice in the family relations and litigation areas of the law.
