About me

My practice is divided between Criminal and Civil Law litigation. Being Board Certified in Criminal Law gives me an advantage over civil attorneys who only practice Family Law or Injury Law because they don't have my court room experience. Cross examination of witnesses and the presentation of evidence are skills that are only acquired by lots of courtroom experience.


If you ever need an attorney please set an appointment for a consultation, regardless of the type of case. Even if I can't handle your case, I can help by referring you to an experienced, ethical attorney who can. Rather than having to flip through the yellow pages and hope you are lucky enough to find someone competent, I will find someone for you who you can trust.


If you need an aggressive attorney to represent you in a criminal, family, or injury case, in Clearwater, New Port Richey, or anywhere else in the Tampa Bay area, don't hesitate to call an experienced trial lawyer. We offer FREE CONSULTATIONS and individually suited PAYMENT PLANS.
