About me

Thank you for looking at my Avvo profile.  I've been licensed to practice law in Florida since 2009.  I graduated from Florida State University's College of Law in 2008 and I have a BA in English Honors from the University of South Florida.  During my time in law school, I interned at a local criminal defense firm, as well as the local public defender's office.  I also completed two clinical courses at FSU College of Law: the Public Interest Law Center (formerly the Children's Advocacy Center), which represented juveniles in delinquency and dependency matters and the Children in Prison Project, which worked toward changing the laws of juvenile sentencing in Florida.  Since my graduation, I have spent the past three years as an Assistant Public Defender in Tampa, Florida.  I've handled thousands of traffic, misdemeanor, and felony cases for adults and juveniles.  My initial consultations are free, so call me and tell me about your legal problem.  If I can't help you, I may be able to refer you to someone who can.
