About me

My background is in both State and Federal criminal defense.   I have handled cases ranging from misdemeanor offenses to first-degree murder and terrorism.  I now dedicate the vast majority of my practice to appeals and post conviction matters in both criminal and famiy cases.  In addition to my own cases, I regularly consult with attorneys throughout the State of Florida.  In recognizing that this area of law involves incredibly difficult challenges for clients, I offer my skill, experience, compassion and honesty.  Please feel free to read more about my background on my criminal appeals website,, or family appeals at


When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son.  We travel regularly and have a particular love for all things Italy!
