Orlando Violation of Probation Lawyer - Criminal Trial Specialist
I am one of the eight female attorneys in the Orlando area who is currently Board Certified by the Florida Bar in Criminal Trial Law. Under the Florida Bar, lawyers who hold a Board Certification in this law are identified as Specialist or Experts in the field of Criminal Trial Law.
With a Board Certification in Criminal Law, the Florida Bar recognizes the knowledge, specialty, and expertise that a Board Certified attorney has in the area of Criminal Trial Law.
I am a fighter who understands how attorneys on both sides of a criminal case think and work. Having practiced extensively in both criminal defense and prosecution, I understand how criminal cases are tried and the legal tactics both sides use.
After graduating from Stetson University in 2004, I attended Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Florida. While earning my license to practice law, I was an active member of the mock trial team, where I learned valuable skills in trial advocacy.
After graduating from Barry University School of Law and passing the Florida Bar, I worked for the Office of the State Attorney of Florida as assistant state attorney. While there, I prosecuted cases in the 9th Judicial Circuit of Florida, ranging from second-degree misdemeanors to first-degree felonies. I handled more than 30 jury trials and numerous adversarial hearings. I have also concluded thousands of prosecutions during my legal career.
I later joined an Orlando law firm as an associate managing its criminal defense division. I have worked solely to defend clients against criminal charges and probation violations. Fighting for my clients and their rights is immensely satisfying to me, and it is what I do best. Retain my services, and you will receive one-on-one attention from beginning to end of your legal journey.
In my spare time I enjoys playing with my dogs J.P. and Pepper. I also enjoy reading and am an avid runner.
