About Me

I have more than 19 years of courtroom experience and I have tried more than 80 cases.  I served the people of Pinellas County as a Prosecutor for 6 years (1996 to 2002).  In 2002, I entered private practice representing persons injured as a result of the negligence of others at Beltz & Ruth P.A.  In 2006, I opened my own office to provide my client’s with hands on personable representation. I strive to apply the more than 19 years of diverse training and experience that I have obtained through my years of practice in PinellasCounty and the Tampa Bay Area.


 


Please contact me today for a free initial consultation at 727-538-4155 or visit my website at www.montronelaw.com. I look forward to helping you regarding your legal matters.


 


I have represented criminal clients charged with such crimes as Murder, Armed Robbery, Capital Sexual Battery, Trafficking in Cocaine, Child Abuse,  Domestic Violence, DUI and other criminal traffic offenses.  My civil practice has included representing clients injured in automobile accidents and premises liability claims, domestic violence injunction hearings, sealing and expunging arrest records, civil traffic infractions, and driver's license suspension issues.
