About me

I have been practicing criminal law since 1982, when I began my career as an Assistant Public Defender in Miami, Florida. During that time, I have represented close to 2500 clients and have done over 150 jury trials and written over 250 appellate briefs. In 2003, the Florida Bar certified me as a criminal trial specialist. In 2007, James Publishing released my book, Florida Criminal Trial Procedure. I enjoy what I do and look forward to speaking to you about your criminal issues.
