About me

I am a commercial and insurance defense litigator with an emphasis on construction and complex tort defense cases (such as complex product liability cases).  As a commercial litigator, I have extensive experience in employment, bankruptcy, and technology law.  I have actively practiced in every federal and bankruptcy court in the State of Florida, and have appeared in federal or bankruptcy courts in Georgia, Texas, Ohio, New York, and Delaware.  While I am admitted to the United States Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court, federal appeals do not comprise a significant portion of my current practice.
