About me

I received my Bachelors from the University of South Florida in 1989 and my JD from Mercer University in 1993.

I was a former prosecutor for 6 years, have 17 years courtroom experience, felony and misdemeanor jury trial experience, and have been a Palm Beach County resident my whole life. 

Since leaving the Prosecutors office, I have been practicing exclusively in criminal defense and the defense of traffic cases using my contacts at the Prosecutor's office as well as my extensive knowledge of criminal and traffic rules and procedures to defend all of my cases.

I have handled thousands of criminal and traffic cases.
