I charge flat fees, instead of hourly fees, in most cases. I believe it is critical to advise a client on the economic efficiency of any legal or non-legal course of action. I offer a very comprehensive consultation in non-custody cases for only $20.00.
I concentrate on the representation of consumers for a very reasonable fee, although I occassionally handle commercial cases if I have a previous or existing relationship with a client or a person referred by a previous or existing client. The only bankruptcy cases I handle are chapter 7 cases. I have handled a great many such cases for fees which are substantially lower than most attorneys charge.
I am a certified by the Florida Bar as a Family Law Mediator. I believe this training assists me in the high number of consent divorces i have handled. I define a consent divorce as one in which the parties enter into a marital settlement agreement BEFORE ANY LEGAL PROCEEDINGS ARE FILED and cooperate in accomplishing fast divorce that is fair to all involved, especially minor children. I handle contested cases for an hourly rate of $150 per hour ($200 per hour for higher income clients).
My other major practice area is the preparation of documents such as Prenuptial Agreements, Wills, Living Trusts, Living Wills, Powers of Attorney, Pre-need Guardian proxies and Health Surrogate Designations for a reasonable flat fee.
Personal interest and information: Favorite TV is Bucs football, Political News programs and Science Fiction series such as Star Trek, Stargate and Doctor Who. I enjoy the art of the expressionists. I am an occassional video game enthusiast. I enjoy online poker. I am a foosball (table soccer) player of professional rank (retired).

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
David’s comment: “I WITHHELD DELIVERY OF DEED TO A CLIENT WHO UNJUSTIFIABLY REFUSED TO PAY ME A SUM LESS THAN $100 FOR COURT COSTS CLEARLY DUE UNDER A WRITTEN FEE AGREEMENT. I DID VOLUNTARILY RELEASE THE DEED AFTER THE CLIENT RETAINED OTHER COUNSEL. HOWEVER, THE FLORIDA BAR TOOK THE POSITION THAT I WAS NOT ENTITLED TO WITHHOLD THE DEED BECAUSE MY WRITTEN FEE AGREEMENT WITH THE CLIENT DID EXPRESSLY STATE THAT I HAD THE RIGHT TO TO A LIEN ON THE DOCUMENT OBTAINED IN THE COURSE OF MY REPRESENTATION OF THE CLIENT.”
