About me

Thank you for viewing my profile. 


I am an aggressive attorney practicing in personal injury litigation and insurance dispute litigation.  I have been successfully representing clients in Florida for personal injuries such as automobile collisions, slip and falls, defective products, wrongful death, since 2001, handling all aspects of cases from pre-litigation negotiations through trial. 


I am happy to discuss your legal rights with you any time.
