I am here to answer your questions. I want to earn your trust. Hiring an attorney is never an enjoyable process and I appreciate the value of your hard earned money. .
I was born and raised in northern Kentucky and Kentucky is where I learned the value of hard work and compassion. I have resided in southwest Florida for more than 10 years and Naples is now where I call home.
I decided I wanted to become an attorney to help people like my parents and family who often times found legal representation out of the reach. My dad is a retired steel foundry laborer who would come home from work beat up, sometimes burned, and tired. My mother also worked to provide for me and my brother. My parents still reside in Kentucky and have been married since 1972. I have a younger brother who works in the HVAC industry and he has also been a very successful high school football coach in Kentucky. I knew at an early age that I wanted to earn my living helping working people and families like my own. I am very proud to say that I am a first generation attorney.
I graduated from Campbell County High School, Northern Kentucky University, and then attended law school at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan where I earned my Juris Doctorate. While attending law school, I got my first courtroom experience working for the late Robert Jacobs as a Certified Legal Intern in the Public Defender's Office in Fort Myers, Florida. My past experiences have shaped how I view the world today and I am extremely proud of my blue collar roots.
I have had the fortune to have worked for exemplary law firms. I gained a wealth of knowledge and experience while working in a support capacity for Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, a top personal injury firm in Fort Myers, Florida. I then went to work in Naples, Florida for Scott Martin Roth and Associates, as my heart was drawing me back the criminal defense world and the rewarding work of family law. While working with Scott, I personally represented individuals in all types of family law and criminal defense matters.
In 2012, I opened up my own law practice in Naples, Florida; where the focus of the practice was divorce, child custody matters, and criminal defense.
I have taken many cases from initial phone call to trial. I am proud of the work I have done for my clients.
I still provide legal representation to those who find themselves in the darkest and most stressful times of their life. Whether it be divorce, child custody issues, DUI, drug possession or other general areas of the law. I am proud to be able to work for working people.
I also enjoyed a rewarding experiencing teaching in the criminal justice and legal studies departments at Southwest Florida College. In my free time, I enjoy kayak fishing and I have remained a lifelong Cincinnati Reds and Bengals fan. I reside in Naples, Florida and I am licensed to practice law in both Kentucky and Florida.
