I have been practicing law since 1995. I started as an assistant state attorney working my way up through felony prosecutions. I started my private practice career in 2002. I help people in the area of criminal defense, record expungements, and traffic tickets.
I keep my practice limited to specific areas of the law. These limited areas allow me to practice the law with the knowledge to advise you and defend you to the best of my abilities. I practice throughout the state of Florida.
If you are looking for an attorney that will be honest with you about your situation and charge you a reasonable fee, please give me a call.
I can help you in the following areas:
I cannot give out free legal advice. However, I can discuss your situation with you and help you decide whether hiring a lawyer is the right choice for you. Remember that I limit my practice area and cannot advise you of areas of the law I do not practice in.
Licensed since 1995

Eric is an excellent attorney in the criminal defense and speeding/traffic defense arenas. I have sent him many individuals with significant traffic offense issues that were affecting their licenses and in turn their ability to make a living. Eric has always been succesful in getting their matters resolved so that their licenses were still valid - either by getting the charges completely dismissed or by negotiating a great settlement.
