About Me

I believe in preparing every case as if it is going to trial. It is only by being ready for trial that you can expose the weaknesses in the State's case and have any real leverage for plea negotiations.


 


Criminal defense is my passion and I truly believe that my clients are entitled to my absolute best efforts on every single case. Whether your charge is a minor misdemeanor, DUI, or serious felony, my representation of you does not change.


I accept cases on every type of crime short of death penalty cases. You have to be certified to handle death cases and I have not reached the point in my career where I am eligible to be certified.


 


While I am proud of my past achievements, unfortunately Bar rules prohibit me from posting them on this website.



I am licensed to practice in Florida and Federal court (Middle District Florida)
