A Voice for the Injured and the Disabled...A Vision Realized
When I was 15, I decided to become an attorney as a voice for the injured and the disabled after being involved in a serious accident. I understand exactly what it feels like to be treated by others differently and not have my voice heard, because of an injury. I have a passion and desire to help others as an attorney and treat them with respect, dignity and sincerity. After graduating from Stetson University College of Law in 2000 and then working at a legal, non-profit organization and several law firms, I founded my own law firm in 2006 based on these qualities.
Besides being a voice for the injured and the disabled in Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Child's SSI and Auto Accident cases, I also have the privilege to represent people in a variety of other areas of law such as the following: Real Estate, Traffic Tickets and DUI's, Criminal Defense and Wills. I practice cases in the Tampa Bay Area and surrounding areas, but locally and nationally for SSDI and SSI cases.
I am currently admitted to practice before all courts within Florida as well as the U.S. District Court Middle District of Florida, including the Bankruptcy Division, 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Since 2006, I have been a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit and County Mediator. In April 2021, I was certified by The Florida Supreme Court as a Family Mediator. I have also served as an Adjunct Professor in the MBA program with the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg where I taught Advanced Negotiation.
I have been honored to be involved with doing legal pro-bono work and working with non-profit organizations including the following: Executive Director of The Far Corners, Inc. (2006-2012), Executive Council & Strategic Planning Committee of the Pinellas County Coalition for the Homeless (2001-2003), Past Board Member of Homeless Empowerment Program, Inc. (2000-2004), Member of St. Petersburg Bar Foundation (2012), Past Board Member of Aging Matters, Inc. (1999-2000) and the Community Law Program, Inc.
I am truly grateful to have realized my vision to be able to help others as an attorney, and it is such a privilege to do so.
