About me

Greene & Tischler is a hands on law firm, giving our clients personal attention throughout the the entire legal process. I have been a Board Certified as a Civil Trial Attorney by the Florida Bar for over 20 years. I am also a lifetime member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a national organization of attorneys who have obtained a verdict or settlement of one million dollars or more. Prior to entering private practice, I was an Assistant State Attorney for the 20th Judicial Circuit in Florida. During that time, I successfully prosecuted hundreds of cases, ranging from DUI to Capital Murder. I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio and graduated from the University of Dayton Law School.


If you read our client reviews, there is a recurrent theme. I spend time talking to my clients, explaining all aspects of their case. I operate on the belief that when you call our office, you want to talk to your attorney, not a secretary or legal assistant. And you want your phone calls returned in a prompt manner. Making  a decision whether to settle a case or go to trial can be a complex and intimidating process. Which is why you deserve to have all the necessary information about your case explained in detail so you can feel comfortable in the resolution of your case.


During my spare time, I enjoy golfing, coaching youth baseball and enjoying the great beaches and restaurants here in SW Florida. My wife and I have lived in Cape Coral for 30 years and we are both members and Elders at Faith Presbyterian Church in Cape Coral.
