About me

Hello, I have been in private practice since 1991. Since that time, I  have represented thousands of clients in various legal matters including Criminal Defense, Personal Injury and Real Estate, in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties. In the late 1990s and early years of 2000, while in private practice, I was appointed Special Public Defender in many criminal defense cases in Broward County. I further have secured millions of dollars for clients injured as a reuslt of an accident.  Please call me at any time.  Thank you for your time.
