About Me

I am an experienced criminal defense trial lawyer.  I have been practicing criminal defense exclusively for 20 years.  I handle cases in both State and Federal Courts.  Since I am located in Miami, a majority of my cases are in Miami-Dade County, however I handle cases all over the State of Florida.  In Federal Court, I have handled cases all over the country.
