I practiced nursing for several years before becoming an attorney. My nursing background is extremely valuable in my practice, from knowing standards of care to evaluating injuries to taking expert depositions. I represent people who have been injured in cases involving wrongful death, personal injury, and medical malpractice.
I am admitted to practice in the U.S. District Courts in the Northern and Middle Districts of Georgia, and in the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida. I frequently speak on various issues in Florida law, and I have authored many articles regarding aspects of Florida law.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
