About me

I am originally from Upstate New York.  I studied law at the State University of New York at Buffalo and graudated in 2003.  Upon graduation, I escaped to Florida to stay warm and be near family.  I was admitted to the Florida Bar in November 2003.  I lived in Orlando and practiced for about 8 years before relocating to South Florida.  During that time, I also received my masters in business administration from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida.  I now live with my family in Hollywood, Florida.  I practice family law and I take cases in Southeast Florida and Central Florida, including Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Volusia, and Brevard counties. 


I am available to help you with your dissolution of marriage, divorce, paternity, child support, equitable distribution, alimony, contempt and enforcement or other family law matter.
