About Me

I am a Miami native with over 20 years of legal experience in the real estate industry.  Over the course of my career, I represented lenders, property owners, property managers, developers and construction companies (contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers).  Today, I use my vast real estate industry experience to facilitate resolution of real estate and related disputes.  I am a mediator dedicated to resolution through mediation.
