About me

        For 18 years, I have practiced law in the Tampa Bay area.  My first tenure was  4.5 years with the State Attorney's Office, where I was allowed  to develop my skills as a trial lawyer conducting over 80 trials.

      In 2001, I accepted a position with the law firm of Frazer, Hubbard, et al, where I continued to sharpen my skills as a trial lawyer and became immersed in the field of civil and municipality law.  I grew as a professional, met and provided legal advice to local city commissioners, mayors and law enforcement. 

        In 2004, I established my own practice  concentrating on criminal defense, and have enjoyed the clients I have met and represented. My criminal experience is extensive in the prosecution and defense of criminal law, especially, DUI law. 

        As a prosecutor and defense attorney, I have attended and completed numerous seminars in the field of DUI law, to include, the maintenance of the breath alcohol machine, Driving Patterns, Police/Citizen Contact, Field Sobriety Exerices, Florida Implied Consent Law, and Breath Alcohol Reading.  

       I have lectured on DUI law, in Tampa and Palm Beach, respectively, and have had numerous articles published in criminal and civil law.   

       I received my law degree from the Mercer School of Law in 1996, and graduated from the University of South Florida with a B.A., majoring in History, concentrating on Military History, and a minor in Psychology. 

       For over 14 years, I have been a professor for the School of Business at the University of Phoenix (Central Florida Campus), where I instruct undergraduate and graduate students on Management, Communication, Leadership, Criminal Justice, History, and Law. 

       A member of the Florida and Colorado Bar - Proficient in Spanish.
