About Me

After receiving an undergraduate degree in Information Systems and then a law degree,  I joined the Broward Public Defender Office and built the first computer system for them back in the early 1990's.  The first time most of the employees learned of the new concept called "E-mail " was the internal email system.  My interest in computer systems and the law actually dove-tailed because they both involve "Logic".


 


After a few internal positions I opened my own law office back in 2003.  I have practiced in my first area of practice, criminal law, and then branched out to other areas including civil litigation, landlord-tenant law and appeals.


 


The greatest satisfaction is a victory for a client against the odds!
