Practice area

I am admitted to practice in all Florida state courts. I currently am a member of the Florida Bar and Charlotte County Bar Association serving as a member of its board of directors from 2012-2016 and its President for the 2015-16 term.  I make a concerted effort to give back to the community in which I was raised. I began my legal career as a prosecutor for the 20th Judicial Circuit and have also served on the Board of Directors for the American Red Cross for the Charlotte County, Southwest Florida Community and Tampa Bay Regional Chapters.

Recommendation for Ernie Sturges
I highly recommend the services of Ernie Sturges concerning any real estate matters. In my recent transactions with Mr. Sturges, he was professional, and responded in a timely matter to my requests, and guided me through a maze of difficult situations involving the successful sale of a residence.
