About me

I am the first and only Board Certified Marital and family Law Attorney in Lake County since 2004.  I am also a Family Law Mediator, certified through the Florida Supreme Court.  I have tried over 100 Jury and 700 Non-Jury trials, and I have prosecuted over 2,000 Criminal cases and litigated over 300 Civil Forfeiture cases.  Since 2005, I've limited my practice to family law.  While I've only been married once, I've been through about 1200 divorces!  Family matters, so we only handle family matters.
