Toll-free Statewide

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

It was best suited with my personal background and former prosecutorial career experience.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

A better informed client is always better off. However, the danger lies in where the information is obtained. There is so much drivel and badly thought out "legal" ideas on the internet and television, it's usually best to just ask your own attorney whatever questions you may have.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

In some cases (for example, contractual review), this is extremely important.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Coaching or "Ghosting" cases is frowned upon by the Florida Bar and not a part of our practice.

I grew up in a household that was led by a non college-educated entrepreneur. The types of decisions, struggles and triumphs that come with such a household help make me a better man and better lawyer today.

We are a results-driven law firm, and everything we do is with an eye towards results.

Outside of the law, our firm is commonly entered in local golf tournaments, and of course, closely follows Gator football.
