About me

I am an attorney at Hardesty, Tyde, Green and Ashton since 1997. I handle personal injury, family, criminal and social security disability cases. I was a prosecutor for almost 7 years and have tried over 60 jury trials.

My firm is known for the individual attention we give our clients and most of my clients are referred by people I have helped in the past.  I would be honored to serve you.

Please feel free to contact me if you feel I may be able to assist you with a legal matter in Florida. I can be reached at (904) 735-4860.


Among my many interests I especially enjoy time with my wife and daughter and serving as a Sunday School teacher at my church. My hobbies inclued hunting with a longbow, fishing, scuba diving, shooting and traditional archery.
