About me

Raised in Tampa and a graduate of nearby Stetson University College of Law, I have been proud to serve the residents and businesses of the Tampa Bay Region since 2009.  I handle a significant variety of business disputes and transactions ranging from business formation to intellectual property litigation and the myriad of issues inbetween.  I also take pride in the family law portion of my practice, where I have helped parents and spouses transition into new chapters of their lives.

Although a portion of my practice is transactional in nature, I am an accomplished litigator with more than twenty trials in the past five years and more than 100 cases handled from inception to conclusion.
