About Me

After graduating from Stetson College of Law, I began working as an assistant public defender.  I successfully litigated thousands of cases as a public servant.  The experience I gained from working for the Public Defender's Office in the Sixth Circuit contributed to my desire to continue representing individuals accused of crimes in the private sector.  My law partner and I opened our firm in Pinellas County with the goal of offering our clients individualized service through open and honest communication and aggressive representation.
