I am an AV rated attorney by Martindale, a peer review rating organization.  AV is the highest rating you can receive.  Beginning with the amendment of the Florida Guardianship Act in 1989 through December, 1995, I served as one of five court appointed attorneys for all guardianship cases in southern Pinellas County, Florida. I have also been appointed multiple times to represent patients to determine whether life support should be discontinued.
