About Me

My life experience has taken me from a small town in the Florida panhandle to law school in New York City and back to Tampa, Florida.  With a  population mixed with  multigenerational natives and newcomers, and an international influence, Tampa is a great city.  When I first moved to the Tampa Bay area I worked for a not for profit consumer advocacy organization. I became licensed to practice law in Florda and started my own practice. I  enjoyed helping my clients in the areas of family law, estate planning and criminal defense.  I now concentrate on traditional and LGBT Family Law including estate planning and adoptions for same sex couples.
