About me

I am a Florida Bar board certified real estate attorney with specialized experience representing the legal demands of homeowner and condominium associations.  In addition to handling the transactional and litigation needs of our community association clients, I am adept at representing and providing legal counsel to individuals and business entites as it pertains their real estate and business related legal needs.  This representation includes drafting/reviewing contracts, evictions, collections and foreclosures.  Fees are based upon reasonable hourly rates or in some instances a fixed rate.  Sorry, matters are not handled on contingency.

  • Robert Rivas

    Len and I have worked together in litigation for years, first when we were at the same law firm, and since then. He is smart and tenacious. I've been around to see for myself how he interacts with his clients, and how they react to him. They trust him and rely on him. I recommend him without hesitation.
