About me

I was born and raised in Pinellas County, Florida.  I attended Jesuit High School in Tampa, FL.  I completed college and law school at Stetson University. 

After graduating from law school I worked for 3 years at the Hillsborough County Office of the State Attorney prosecuting criminal cases. 

Upon leaving the Office of the State Attorney, I began my own practice focused in criminal defense.  The office continued to expand over the years into the area of personal injury and representing clients injury in accidents.
