About Me

I have been representing the injured and disabled throughout West Central Florida for over 25 years since graduating with a juris doctorate degree from Stetson University College of Law.  I represent the injured and disabled and never insurance companies.


Contact my office to schedule a confidential case evaluation.

I am a member of various legal bar groups, including the Florida Justice Association (workers' compensation section); the Florida Bar (workers' compensation section); the American Association for Justice; the national Workplace Injury Law & Advocacy Group; the National Organization of Social Security Claimant's Representatives, and am a founding member and director of Florida Workers' Advocates, a Florida statewide organization of lawyers who represent injured workers.

I am board certified by the Florida Bar as an expert in workers' compensation law, a distinction earned by fewer than 1% of Florida lawyers (there is no Florida Bar Social Security Board certification).  I am AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell Legal Directories which is the highest attorney competency rating given by Martindale-Hubbell, the nation’s largest and most prominent national attorney rating company.
