I grew up in Hillsborough County and graduated from Plant City High School. After high school, I joined the Marine Corp. After the Marine Corp, I attended College at the University of South Florida where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, was on the Dean’s list and a member of the Gold Key Club. I then attended Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale where I graduated in the top 15% of his class (Cum Laude). While attending law school, I made the Dean’s list and received a Book Award. I was also a member of the Hispanic Law Student Association, American Bar Association and a volunteer for Reading for Life. During his tenure at Nova Southeastern, I worked as a law clerk for Boose, Casey, Ciklin, et al. in West Palm Beach dealing with family law, contracts and securities issues, and for the Law Offices of Asnis, Srebnick & Kaufman in Sunrise, FL, where I managed an entire pre-litigation claims department for personal injury victims. After law school graduation, I worked for the Youngblood Law Firm in Tampa, Florida as an Associate Attorney representing victims in State and Federal Court in personal injury and medical malpractice claims. I then became an Assistant Public Defender for the 13th Judicial Circuit wherein he represented defendants accused of criminal acts in misdemeanor, felony and traffic courts. Thereafter, I opened his own law practice in Historic Hyde Park and have utilized his prior experiences to obtain successful outcomes for his clients.
