About me

In my 21 years of practicing law, I have been fortunate to be able to focus on the areas of the law that interest me the most. My practice has, in part, focused on the representation of children. That representation is sometimes tied to delinquent charges incurred by the child or as a guardian ad litem for children who are involved in dependency and neglect proceedings. This experience has also given me great insight when representing Parents, Grandparents and other family members who are concerned for the welfare of their children.


My love and unique approach to this area of the law is what influenced me to become certified as a Specialist in Child Welfare Law. I have been awarded that Certification by the National Association of the Council for Children. After obtaining that, I began representing children and parents within the school system who were in need of Independent Education Plans (IEP’s) or 504 plans. My years of experience as a litigator, in the Juvenile Court, and relationships within the school system, allow me to work with the family and the school system to obtain the educational results necessary for the child.


My other two main areas of practice are representing businesses and representing clients who have been injured either in an automobile accident, slip and fall or work related incident. I have been practicing in both these areas of the law since 1994, so I have extensive experience in business formation, employment law, and helping those who have been wrongfully injured.


In my law practice, I am calm, responsive and firm. My client’s appreciate the frankness with which I speak. I always advise my clients of the law and my honest analysis of their situation, while at the same time respecting their wishes and their ultimate decision.


I grew up in Key Largo, Florida, which led to my interests in scuba diving, boating, and anything related to water sports. I received my Psychology degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. I then received my law degree from Nova Southeastern School of Law in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1994. I am a member of Brentwood United Methodist Church, an active board member of the Highland Park Homeowners Association, a Daisy Troop leader, and actively volunteer at my children’s school.


I am most proud of my marriage to my husband, John, and our two children, my favorite son, Taylor, and my favorite daughter, Bella.
