About me

I am a dispute-oriented attorney, practicing since 1992 in Pinellas County, Florida.  I will work with you to find solutions to your legal issues, not create more problems.  The impact of divorce on children is of paramount importance to me, and I will guide you in how to help them endure this experience without scars or trauma.  I am a certified family and circuit civil mediator, and I can facilitate a friendly resolution of your case, whether by court-ordered mediation or a voluntary process.
