About Me

I have been a resident of South Florida my entire life.  I wanted to be a lawyer since I was a teenager.  I put myself through lawschool and college and worked hard to achieve success.  My entire professional career has been fighting for the average person.  I don't represent banks or big corporations, but I love to fight them.  More information is available at www.fight13.com.
