About Me

I am  an American attorney and lawyer in England and Wales.  I am licensed to practise law in the states of Ohio (1992) and Florida (1994).  I  was admitted to the federal bar with the Middle District Court of Florida in 1994. After taking the qualified lawyer transfer test, I became a solicitor in England and Wales in 1999.   I am a former solicitor now and practice as an english lawyer in my capacity here as an English Notary Public.  I was appointed by the Secretary of State for the state of Florida as a Florida Civil Law Notary in 2004 and was appointed by the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury as a Public Notary in England and Wales in February 2008.
