About me

I am very passionate about the practice of law and couldn't imagine doing anything else.  My goals at the office are to learn something new everyday, use that knowledge to help others, and never lose sight of principles for which I fight.


A few quick words about how I got to where I am today: 

  • I began working in the criminal justice system in 1994 as a case manager at a correctional facility.  

  • Thereafter, I went to work as a city police officer in Raleigh, North Carolina, where I realized my true passion for studying the law and helping others.  

  • My law enforcement experience taught me to take control of situations, think quick on my feet and to be an effective communicator. 

  • I went to law school in 2003, earning a spot on the school's Moot Court team and cleking for the Florida Supreme Court in 2004.


WIth nearly two decades of experience in the criminal justice system, I remain committed to providing trustworthy, reliable service to my clients and helping those in a time of need.
