About me

I was born and raised on a small family farm as the son of two high school math teachers. I had the great fortune of growing up next door to my grandparents. My grandfather taught me the meaning and rewards of a hard day's work. I used those lessons to excel both academically and personally resulting in the great honor of being named in the inaugural class of Indiana University’s Herbert Presidential Scholars. While in undergrad, I was fortunate enough to be granted the opportunity to work as a research assistant for Professor David C.W. Parker which gave me the opportunity to develop my research skills, co-author an academic paper, and present that paper at the 2007 Annual Meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association. After completing my undergraduate degree a year early, I enrolled in Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law where I graduated with honors. While in law school I gained experience at the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office and at Cohen & Malad, LLP. I now have the great pleasure of working with one of the finest attorneys I have had the pleasure of knowing in Eric Pavlack as I continue to enjoy the rewards of a hard day’s work.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    If you want to know how good an attorney is, take a look at the cases they have handled, what other lawyers think of him, his years of experience, the well written legal papers he has, their work experience in law, the helpfulness of their web site, and most importantly their personal background that led them to law as a career. You do that and you will see and conclude what I did, that attorney Flora is smart, cares about his clients, knows the law and, better yet, knows how a courtroom works. That's exactly what people need in a litigation attorney. If his office is anywhere near you, I recommend him to you.
