About Me

From interning in the state legislature; to trying the most difficult cases as a young public defender; to being equipped with latest trial techniques, I have focused my career on seeing to it that my clients are provided with the finest and most aggresive criminal defense on the Treasure and Space Coast of Florida. Business leaders; school teachers and tradesman - and even police officers - have relied on my knowledge of the law and insight when faced with career threatening DUI's. When I am not practicing in the courtroom, I can be found at national seminars from Harvard to Las Vegas.
