About me

I have the privilege of providing the highest caliber legal
representation for my clients and assuring that my clients are satisfied
with the work performed by me and the results obtained for them.
Although located in Central Florida, I focus my practice throughout the
State of Florida in both federal and state courts.

I am dedicated to offering my clients results normally associated with
large firms and the customer service typically found only at smaller
ones. I personally handle my client’s cases, and I always remain
focused on my client’s bottom line.
