About me

I was raised in Jacksonville, Florida and went to local schools before going to college.   I traveled extensively while in the Merchant Marine as an engineer before returning to law school.  After I graudated from law school, I moved back to Jacksonville and worked for two law firms before starting my current law practice in 1988.  I try to remember that every situation is different and needs to be handled as such.  No two clients or their problems are the same and the needs of particular clients are the first and foremost concern of my practice.
