31 years, 1,000 cases
After graduating from the Marshall-Wythe School of law at the College of William & Mary, I clerked for the Honorable Pamela B. Minzner in New Mexico. I then entered private practice in Florida in 1992 and have litigated primarily in state courts, including appeals. I have been a certified mediator since 1997 and am now certified in circuit civil, appellate, family and county court mediation. I am the Vice President of the Florida Academy of Professional Mediators, and edited their newsletter, The Caucus.
I am also a qualified arbitrator for state court matters. I am a FINRA arbitrator and chair-qualified and have arbitrated hundreds of cases, mainly as chairperson. I am also a Special Magistrate for the Broward County Value Adjustment Board. I also serve as an arbitrator for the American Health Law Association.
Aside from my legal and dispute resolution experience, I am the race director and coach for Synergy Outdoor Adventure Resources, a nonprofit that fosters participation in outdoor recreation and competition including paddlesports and adventure racing. We and the team we sponsor support the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre, which has been serving South Florida communities for almost 60 years. I wrote Blazing Paddles: Your Guide to Forming a Fun, Fast Dragon Boat Team, the highest rated book of its kind on Amazon.
