I am a graduate of the University of Florida and earned my law degree from Nova Southeastern University. In my final semester of law school at Nova Southeastern University's Shepard Broad Law Center, I was permitted to practice law as an Assistant Attorney General in Knoxville, Tennessee. As a prosecutor, I successfully tried criminal matters in the criminal courts of Knox County Tennessee.
Following my return to South Florida I began defending individuals involved in automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, nursing home abuse matters, and slip and falls. As a trial attorney I specialize in handling all personal injury claims with an emphasis on medical malpractice matters.
In 2002, I relocated my practice to Central Florida. I now represent individuals, not insurance companies, in an attemtp to help those in the community who may need legal assistance but may not be able to afford the high cost of legal fees. I routinely work with clients and allow them to pay their fees through payment plans as opposed to requiring significant retainers from the clients in order to begin representing them in thier legal needs.
I actively represent clients in a variety of legal needs including an active bankruptcy practice where he helps clients get out of debt through the bankruptcy process. Even when the credit card companies and bill collectors try to convince and scare debtors into a fear of Bankruptcy, I am here to help my clients stand up to bill collectors and credit card companies.
In addition, I also represent clients in a range of civil litigation matters including the violation of civil rights of prisoners, wrongful employment terminations, false imprisonment, sexual assault of students by school employees, automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, medical negligence and slip and fall accidents to an active bankruptcy practice in which he helps his clients get out of debt by filing voluntary bankruptcy petitions assisting clients.
I am the President of the Winter Garden Little League where my sons have been playing since 2004. I an active in the Winter Garden Community and actively sponsor sports teams in all levels of sports and help support the local community outreach programs.
I am also a rabid Gators Fan. Go Gators!
