About Me

I am an experienced divorce attorney located just outside the Orlando, Florida area and practicing predominately  in divorce, child support, child custody, alimony, paternity and other family law related matters, including enforcement, contempt and modification actions. My office is located in Lake County and we are currently accepting cases in Orange, Lake, Seminole, Osceola, Volusia, Marion and Sumter counties.

Very successful results for both contested and uncontested divorces, military divorces, child support enforcement and modification, custody disputes, and paternity actions, as well as with equitable distribution and alimony or spousal support matters.

My Firm does not believe in unnecessary litigation and I will make every effort to resolve your divorce, paternity, child support or child custody action as reasonably and amicably as possible, while vigorously protecting your interests. Years of Trial experience and a vast familiarity with Family Law is very helpful in determining a reasonable outcome for your case. Of course, should a party not wish to be reasonable, it is sometimes necessary to go to Court and let the Judge decide!

All initial consultations are free! So, please do not hesitate to contact us today, either via phone at (407) 971-6140 or (352) 324-2444 or via email at
