About Me


I was raised in South Florida where I grew up fishing, boating, rooting for the Dolphins, and spending entirely too much time in the sun. After finishing high school in Fort Lauderdale, I attended Florida State University, home of the Seminoles. After graduating, I went to the Florida State University College of Law where I obtained my Juris Doctorate in 1989.


I moved back to South Florida where I began practicing law. I was fortunate enough to have a successful run with my own firm for almost twenty years. During this time, I was instrumental in growing the firm from a two attorney shop into an 11 attorney/ 50 support staff firm with two offices. I devoted my practice to fighting for the rights of the injured and aggrieved, dedicating 100% of my efforts to the rights of the individual, be it personal injury, social security disability or insurance/ contract disputes. I tried over 100 cases to completion in Florida and was successful in obtaining great results- largely by virtue of outworking the other guy. I developed many of the traits that serve me well today- organization, hard work, and a single- minded desire to do the best job possible for my clients.


Far more important though, it was there I met my beautiful wife Rosy. After being blessed with two great little girls, Jennifer and Jessica, we took a look at the proverbial landscape and determined West Palm Beach was not the place to raise kids. Our travels ultimately brought us to Middle Tennessee. I have found this to be the perfect place for us- peaceful, friendly and a heavy emphasis on education. Additionally, we love the people. Tennessee deserves its reputation as the "friendliest place in the country".


Since moving to Tennessee, I have become active at GracePointe Church, learned to love country music and generally spent a lot of quality time raising my kids. I still fish, boat, and spend entirely too much time in the sun. Now, however, I root for the Titans!


Professionally, it was a priority to find a firm committed to providing the best representation available. I firmly believe the client deserves nothing less. Over the course of my career, I have earned certain accolades that reflect this dedication. I am AV rated by Martindale Hubble (the highest rating a lawyer can achieve) and a longtime member of Best Lawyers in America. It was important to me to join a like-minded group. In that regard, I have been blessed to join Hollins, Raybin, and Weissman. This is a great group that works hard, loves the law and places the priority on the client's needs and results. I look forward to a long future in the Nashville legal community, and believe I am in a perfect place to make this happen.
