About me

I am licensed to practice law in all courts in the State of Florida and I am licensed in federal court in the United States Court of the Middle District of Florida. I have aggressively litigated, to trial, cases in both federal and state court.


I specialize in helping individuals and businesses in resolving disputes in many ways - collaborative, mediation and litigation.  I see litigation as a last resort due to the costs, but should it be necessary, have the expertise to do so.  



I was born and raised in Florida. I grew up locally and I attended Winter Park High School and U.C.F.  I graduated first in my class from law school. I love my work and my clients stay close, just a call away.
