I have been practicing family law in the Tampa Bay area for six (6) years. I graduated from St. Joseph's University with my bachelor of arts in English and received my law degree from Stetson University.
In my time of practice I have determine that litigation and mediation must go hand in hand. The best results for my clients have always begun with a strong and reasonable approach to settlement coupled with an attention to the details of each particular case so that my clients are successful in the event of litigation. It is always my goal to achieve a result that is best for my clients and their families.
Litigation can take an unnecessary toll on families. I strive to lessen the emotional impact by explaining the process and being available to my clients beyond the hours I am in my office. Life happens beyond the hours of 9 to 5 during the week. As such, my goal is to be availalbe when my client's have questions. This allows my clients the peace of mind to know that I am looking out for their interests at all times and helping them avoid the pitfalls that are so typically found in family law situations.

I endorse this lawyer. Joe and I were opposing counsel on a contentious case a couple of years ago. Joe took over from previous counsel, quickly oriented himself in he case and made all of the moves necessary to position his client and prepare for trial. At trial, he zealously advocated his client's position, adeptly presented the case to the court and obtained an excellent result. He did a great job in a difficult situation. He proved himself a talented and committed attorney.
