I encourage you to visit my website, , where it tells all about me. Please note that I represent less than 25 clients at a time. When you call, you will talk to me. If I do not answer text me. I do not run a volume business. I chose to practice criminal defense because there I can use my knowledge, skills and education to help a person be better. I do not relish in repeat offenders. I want to defend you once and have you go off and become a productive member of society. I have been around long enough to know the lasting devasting effects that contact with the criminal justice system can have on a life and the lives of all around the accused individual. My experience teaches me that any contact from traffic to murder will impact a person in so many unknown ways. A criminal defense attorney has to be more than just a lawyer with knowledge of the law. I have to be a counsellor, a social worker, a scientist, a psychologist, knowledgable about resources and be able to motivate my client to want to succeed. I remain a resource to all of my clients even beyond the termination of the representation. I have represented more than twelve thousand individuals and probably performed more than 200 jury trials to verdict. I have help many people obtain their licenses back. I have helped people seal and expunge records. I have been a catalyst of getting many young people who were on a bad path back on the right road and onto a successful future. I have also helped reunite many familes. I am knowledgable and relentless in finding whatever available resource that I can to help a client. If I can help you I will.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2008.
Public Reprimand - with Conditions issued in FL, 2008
updated on 05/31/2015
Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior and places conditions on the lawyer's license.
Leslie's comment: “This was the most unfair experience in my life. Having this happen to me made me fight even harder for any of my clients. I agreed to a consent judgment, which would be like a plea agreement in Criminal Law, under the pressure of just getting custody of my niece after my sister had died in 2007. I was completely not guilty of anything but I had no fight left in me. Because of this I would never allow a client to plea out because of external pressures but at my time, I was all alone.”
