About me

Having worked in a variety of fields and in different countries gives me the ability and the drive to assist people with various legal issues.  With the opening of our offices in Belize, Central America, we are able to assist people with Asset Protection, Offshore Banking and investment issues, retiring or residing in Central America and the Caribbean, the purchase of foreign property and businesses, and various import and export opportunites.

     Our firm also maintains a strong litigation focus locally here in Indian River County and the surrounding areas.  We have several lawyers in the firm which allows us to handle all forms of legal matters such as Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, Family Law matters, Guardianships, Foreclosure Defense, etc.  If there is a matter which we cannot assist a client with, we take great efforts to find the right professional to assist them.
