About me

I was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2000, and have been practicing in the areas of Family Law, Criminal Defense and Real Estate Law and have fought hard for my clients throughout the years.  Not only do I understand these areas of  law but having my masters in social work has benefitted me immensly as an advocate in our legal system.  My masters in social work allows me to read people and understanding how to being able to quickly assess and deal with different types of people and understanding the best tactics in a particular  case is incredibly advantageous when dealing with high-tension sensitive litigious matters which are unavoidable in our adverdsary justice system..
