About me

More than 29 years of experience.  I have the ability to resolve a case with a negotiated agreement if possible and the ability to try a civil or criminal case when an acceptable agreement can not be reached.


Prior to opening my own practice, I worked as a prosecuting attorney in the District Attorney's Office for the Brunswick Judicial Circuit for more than 22 years. This experience provided me with valuable knowledge and unique insight to our legal system which now allows me to excel in your representation.
