About me

I love animals and have a full house with 3 dogs and a cat...with more to come! My husband and myself strongly believe that adoption of pets through local rescue organizations is the best way to find your furry loving friends. We  adopted a 5 year old chihuahua, Bunny from a local rescue organization and she is the light of our lives. If you love animals, please donate to your local non-profit rescue agencies. Here are a few in my local area:


A better life pet rescue:


Pupeez rescue:


Saving Grace rescue:


Pets In Distress rescue:

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Public Reprimand - with Conditions
    issued in FL, 2005


    Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior and places conditions on the lawyer's license.

    Caroly’s comment: “The case involved an advertising error only, there was never any issue relating to my representation of a client. It was a technical violation of the Florida Bar rules relating to ads only.”
