About me

I have 20+ years legal experience helping public and private companies and investment funds with their corporate needs at every stage of development.

My goal is to deliver the legal services you need at a cost that represents true value, whether that involves the initial organization, a venture capital or angel financing, acquiring or disposing of another company, completing a securities offering, creating an equity compensation plan, protecting your intellectual property, procuring or licensing software, SaaS, or cloud technology, creating a new business model, or resolving a dispute with your shareholders, customers, or vendors.

I  passionately and diligently pursue your goals and objectives  with a creative problem solving approach that values practical solutions.  I know what works and what doesn’t - so I can reduce the friction in your next transaction.  

I can help with business formation, corporate finance, venture capital,  private placements, PIPES, public securities offerings, 34 Act reporting, mergers and acquisitions, contract negotiation, software, SaaS and cloud licensing, software, SaaS, and cloud distribution, data privacy and security, HIPAA, intellectual property protection, trade secrets, non-competition agreeements, executive compensation, stock options, restricted stock awards, software and encryption export regulation, and strategic alliances

I value the opportunity to work for you.

I graduated from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida in 1975 with a B.A. in English, from The Graduate School of Business of Stetson University in DeLand, Florida in 1977 with an M.B.A., and from The Cumberland School of Law of Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama in 1984 with a J.D. cum laude.  I was an Associate Editor of the Cumberland Law Review, 1982-1984, an Associate Justice of the Henry Upson Sims Moot Court Board, 1983-1984, a member of The Order of Barristers, and a recipient of Curia Honoris.

Prior to joining Krevolin & Horst, LLC in January 2008, I was a partner at Balboni Law Group LLC from February of 2003 to December 2007, a partner in the ebusiness and technology group of Baker Donelson Bearman and Caldwell, PC from February 2001 to February 2003, a partner of Balboni Law Group LLC from June 1995 through February 2001, a partner in the corporate technology group of Morris, Manning and Martin from October 1993 until May 1995, an associate in the corporate finance group at Powell, Goldstein, Frazer & Murphy from January 1988 to October 1993, and an associate in the corporate department of Parker, Johnson, Cook & Dunlevie (now the Atlanta office of Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice) from June 1984 to December 1987.

Prior to law school, I sold mini and mainframe computer systems, manufacturing software applications, data communications networks, and distributed processing networks to manufacturing companies in Central Florida for the CI-MEG group of NCR Corporation in Orlando, Florida from August 1977 until August 1981.
