A little about me. I come from a long line of doctors. My dad was an internist and my grandfather was an OBGYN. I had an uncle who was a surgeon and another uncle who was a neurosurgeon. Doctors in my family tree go all the way back to my great great grandfather who was a surgeon in the civil war. Although we came from a medically dominated family my brother I both deviated from this path and became attorneys.
Virtually all of our practice is devoted to representing and caring for “people with medical problems", personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and social security disability. Coming from the background I came from has proven to be a positive and helpful resource.
Personally I am involved with my Church, Christ Community Church, serve on the Board of Directors of Tri-County Human Services, Inc. and have served on the Board of Directors of Meals on Wheels.
Professionally I am a member of The Florida Bar, An Eagle member of The Florida Justice Association and The Polk County Trial Lawyers Association. I am also a member of the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America.
I was selected in 2009 and 2010 for inclusion in The Top 100 Trial Lawyers for the State of Florida. I am also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, of which fewer than 1% of US lawyers are members.
