I have more than 20 years of courtroom experience and I have tried more than 80 cases. I served the people of Pinellas County as a Prosecutor for 6 years (1996 to 2002). In 2002, I entered private practice representing persons injured as a result of the negligence of others at Beltz & Ruth P.A. In 2006, I opened my own office to provide my client’s with hands on personable representation. I strive to apply the more than 19 years of diverse training and experience that I have obtained through my years of practice in Pinellas County and the Tampa Bay Area.
