About Tarek

Learn Tarek’s areas of practice.

I am committed to helping you solve your individual and business financial challenges. From 2003, I have been a licensed Florida attorney and counselor of law focused on financial and all kinds of bankruptcy issues.  Since 1999, I have been licensed in Florida as a Certified Public Accountant ("CPA") and as a CPA have worked mainly on audit and international tax engagements.  I also earned a Master of Business Administration ("MBA") in 2000.  Since becoming a licensed attorney, I spent two years as the law clerk for Fort Lauderdale Bankruptcy Judge Raymond Ray before joining private practices largely focused on civil litigation and bankruptcy.  I have represented various parties, including bankruptcy and state court trustees, creditors, and debtors.        

At my core I am a Jamaican, with my pre-college educational and spirtual teaching provided by Jesuit Catholic instutions.
