About Me

As an experienced, skilled, and effective trial attorney and injury lawyer, I proudly represent injured persons, focusing on serious injury, catastrophic personal injury, and wrongful death.


 


Based in Fort Myers, I focus on helping my Southwest Florida neighbors throughout Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, Estero, Lee County, and surrounding communities. I focus on each client individually, and every client's questions are answered, phone calls returned, and emails and texts get responses.


 


A serious personal injury can dramatically affect the course of a person's life, as well as the future of his or her family members.  I focus on serious injury and wrongful death matters, seeking to hold the careless and reckless accountable.
