About me

Thanks for taking a moment to view my profile. It would be my pleasure to talk with you about your legal matter. Please call Micheal or Denise in my office to set up a consultation. We look forward to working with you.


I am a Califonia native, and live in Pensacola with my wife and three kids.  We really enjoy being five minutes from the beach, but could live without the hurricanes!  Representing people in the panhandle as a lawyer for the past eight years has been an incredible honor and pleasure.  I am fortunate to work with a great team here at Whibbs & Stone, PA and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this community.  Thank you for taking the time to get information about our firm.
