About me

This Is Who I Am:
I am a Tampa Bay Accident Attorney. I have represented injured persons throughout the State of Florida and I'm licensed to practice law in the United States Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida, the Supreme Court of the State of Florida and all sixty-seven (67) counties.

I began my legal career working for prominent, nationally known attorney, Barry A. Cohen. In 1990, I went into private practice specializing in complex criminal defense law where I regularly defended first degree murder cases, federal conspiracy and racketeering cases, and white collar crimes achieving notoriety on television and in newspapers.

In 1997, I focused my practice solely on helping people injured in accidents. Since that time, I have had the solemn privilege of helping thousands of persons who have been hurt due to the fault of another person or legal entity.

This Is Who I Help:
I represent people who are injured in automobile, truck, and motor cycle accidents, wrongful death cases, slip and fall cases, burn cases, and all types of catastrophic accidents.

This is How I Help:
Those injured in an accident need an advocate who will fight the insurance companies whose main goal is to deny or reduce claims. Insurance adjusters handle thousands of claims per year with the use of computers, databases, lawyers, doctors, and private investigators. That is why I have committed my firm’s resources and my professional gifts and wealth of experience to being the “voice for the injured” whose life is devastated by an accident.
