About me

Born in Saint Louis, Missouri, I moved to Florida in 2003 in order to obtain my law degree from Florida Coastal School of Law.  I met my wife in 2006 and wife we eventually settled down in beautiful Saint Augustine, Florida.  However, I still stick to my Saint Louis roots and am fanatical about my Saint Louis Cardinals baseball team.

I graduated from Law School in 2006 and immediately joined the ranks as an Assistant State Attorney practicing in both the 7th Judicial Circuit (Counties: Saint Johns, Flagler, Putnam, and Volusia) and the 4th Judicial Circuit (Counties: Duval, Nassau and Clay).  As an ASA I have handled over 1000 misdemeanor and felony cases from as low as Driving While License Suspended or Revoked to as high as Attempted Murder.  I have tried over 35 Jury Trials and countless Non-Jury Trials and consider myself a polished trial attorney.

As a private attorney representing individuals across northeast Florida, I strive to provide compassionate, assertive and highly intelligent representation.  I am currently practicing in the areas of Criminal Defense, Personal Injury/Auto Accident, Family Law, Contract Law and Property Law; and our firm also handles Medical Malpractice, Wills, Trusts, Estates, Probate, and Foreclosures.
