About me

I have thoroughly enjoyed practicing law in the same historic office building on Park Avenue in Lake Wales, Florida, since 1976.  I most enjoy helping clients in the areas of  estate planning - wills/trust;  probate; and in real estate and business transactions,  I have always been active in local civic endeavors and now, internationally, in Honduras in rescuing orphaned, abandoned, and/or abused children.
