We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
I obtained my Bachelor's degree with honors from Florida State University before going on to law school. I also graduated with honors from Stetson University College of Law. Upon graduating law school, I received the Victor O. Wehle Trial Advocacy Award given to the law school's top trial litigator.
During law school, I worked for the civil litigation firm of Thompson, Goodis & Thompson and as a Judicial Clerk for the 6th Judicial Circuit. Soon after graduating law school, I gained valuable criminal trial law experience as a State Prosecutor for Orange and Osceola Counties in Florida.
I left the State Attorney's Office in 2002 to pursue a career in criminal defense and personal injury with the goal of helping individuals and their families. I personally handle every client's case and do not push it off to another attorney.
I have tried a wide range of cases and spent many hours in both State and Federal courtrooms fighting for my clients.
I am admitted to practice in the State and Federal Courts of Florida. In addition to my private clients, I am occasionally appointed by the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida to represent individuals charged with federal crimes.
I am a member of the Florida and Central Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, American Bar Association, Florida Bar Association, and the Orange County Bar Association.
When I am not helping clients, I am typically spending time enjoying life with my wife, Francee and our three daughters. I also enjoy the beach/water numerous sports and the outdoors. On Saturdays during the Fall, I can often be found with friends and family in Tallahassee cheering for the Seminoles.
