We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
I decided that I was going to practice law at the age of 8 because I have always had a passion for helping people. Being able to fight for other people is in my DNA and comes across in everything that I do. I am passionate about fighting for justice in all circumstances and I believe in our system when it’s working as it should.
And, at the end of the day, that’s my job! I get to help add a layer of accountability to our system to ensure that it works properly for all people. This means helping people to know their rights, fighting to ensure those rights are upheld, and making sure that the criminal justice system isn’t overwhelming for my clients.
I believe that people deserve second chances, that a mistake shouldn’t define anyone, and that a label such as “criminal” shouldn’t become anyone’s identity. Because of this, I work tirelessly to combine compassion, zeal and integrity in my practice. I fight for my clients at the worst moments they will ever face and pride myself on seeking the best possible outcome to allow my clients to move beyond that interaction with the system.
No one should pay for a crime they didn’t commit and no one should be forced to pay indefinitely for a momentary lapse in judgment.
As a long-term Tampa Bay area resident, I attended the University of South Florida where I received a full scholarship and graduated cum laude. I then worked my way through law school and earned my law degree from Stetson University College of Law, which is recognized as one of the top law schools in the country for trial advocacy. There I participated on the client counseling team and competed nationally as a member of the dispute resolution team.
After graduating in 2004, I began to work for a Fortune 100 company and spent close to a decade practicing in corporate America. I have benefited from numerous leadership, management, and relationship-building courses during my tenure and have been awarded recognition for my performance, collaboration and negotiation skills, and leadership in difficult situations. My real-world experience gives me the ability to look outside the box and bring a different perspective to my client’s cases. I am able to combine my knowledge of the criminal justice system with this experience to earn results for my clients.
I am a full-time wife, mother of two beautiful children, and criminal defense attorney. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me. I am still humbled that I get to live my dream of helping my clients each and every day and I look forward to helping you too.
