I am a Florida Bar Board Certified Business Litigation Attorney.  I am one of just over 200 of the more than 90,000 attorneys in Florida that has been recognized with this honor for my experience and expertise in business litigation law.


 


Board certification in business litigation requires that an attorney be substantially involved in a certain number of business litigation lawsuits and complete a specific number of bench and jury trials to demonstrate competency.  Attorneys must also pass a rigorous and thorough examination and receive a satisfactory review from Judges before whom, attorneys against whom they have litigated, and others in the community. 


 


I am also AV-Preeminent Peer Review Rated by Martindale Hubbell, which is the highest peer review recognition for legal ability and ethical standards that an attorney can achieve.


 


I am additionally and proudly a Fellow in the Litigation Counsel of America.  The LCA is an invitation-only organization of less than one-half of one percent of all attorneys in America.  It is dedicated to ethics and professionalism in the practice of civil litigation.


 


My practice focuses on business/commercial litigation, but I also counsel businesses on a variety of matters from liability exposure to properly documenting their transactions with contracts, non-compete/non-disclosure agreements, and other agreements.  


 


Business/commercial litigation includes contract disputes, business torts,  trade secrets, UCC consumer claims, license and franchise agreement litigation, creditor’s rights, and corporate governance issues and dissolutions.  I also litigate real estate contract and land-use disputes, commercial mortgage foreclosures, special asset prosecutions, commercial landlord/tenant disputes, and represent clients in securities and commercial arbitrations, bankruptcy adversary cases, and independent actions in probate.


 


I am licensed to practice in all Florida State trial and appellate Courts and am authorized to practice before the U.S. Federal District and Bankruptcy Courts for the Southern, Middle and Northern Districts of Florida, and the Eleventh Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.  I am also a member of the Bar of the U.S. Supreme Court and am licensed before the U.S. Court of International Trade and the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.


 


I formerly proudly served as a Captain in the U.S. Army JAG Corps where I represented service members in courts-martial and administrative hearings.


 


I earned my law degree from the University of Miami and my Bachelor’s from the University of Wisconsin in Madison.  I speak Japanese, some Korean, and am an Eagle Scout.  I enjoy scuba diving, underwater photography, and golf.
