About Me

I am a third generation attorney and a native of Fort Lauderdale.  I am admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and the Fifth Circuit, as well as all state courts in Florida.


My practice is concentrated in litigation and appeals dealing with real estate and business issues, as well as advising closely held companies.  I have also been handling property reductions for over 27 years.


I have been married for 32 years and have three grown children.


My interests outside of the law include playing basketball and fishing.
