Firm Overview

Five things you should know:

1. Who is going to be the Attorney in Court for you? Make sure that the person you hire is actually the Attorney going to Court to fight for you. Many firms are like fast food chains and will hand your case off to some branch or satellite office/attorney.

I will personally handle your case. My office is in Hillsborough County and 99% of all my cases are Hillsborough County. I grew up in Tampa and know all the players in the system.

2. There are statutory time limits that you may miss out on if you do not act quickly. Don't lose some of your rights because of indecision. Our consultations are free, either on the phone or in person.

3. My results have proved excellent over the many years of criminal work. Clients always receive personal attention and can expect nothing but the best representation at every stage.

4. I cover all criminal charges that occur in Tampa, FL; Hillsborough County. As a Prosecutor, I was Chief of the State's Narcotics Prosecution Unit as well as the State's entire County Court system, which oversees all DUIs, Domestic Violence, and every misdemeanor in the Florida Statutes. I've been involved in felony cases that range from Homicide, Drug Trafficking, Aggravated Assault and Battery, Kidnapping, Theft, Burglary, and just about all the others as well.

5. I am available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If I don't answer the phone that is sitting right in front of me, it will forward to my personal cell phone.

Criminal Defense
I've been a criminal attorney since 1993. As a former Chief Prosecutor for the State of Florida, I know exactly what the State is trying to prove, and how they're trying to prove it. Let me help you in a system I know.

If you have been charged or a member of your family has been charged, with a criminal offense in Hillsborough County, Florida, then I can help you. Don't lose precious time thinking without having information to help you make a decision.

Call me now to discuss the case on the phone or to come in and see me personally. Either way it's free and you will have the information you need to make a decision in whether to hire an attorney or not.

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

As a former Chief Prosecutor, all my experience is in the area of Criminal Law. I saw how people who get caught in the system, can get steam rolled. Justice needs to be available to everyone.

Criminal Defense was a natural fit. I know where the Prosecution is coming from and how to get out in front of the case so we can make a difference.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

The types of cases I've handled along with the fact that I was former Prosecutor and Law Enforcement Officer.

Every 3 years, I take an additional 35 hours of continuing legal education to stay atop the ever changing law. Also, I am in Court handling criminal cases in average 6 times a week in front of 2-6 different judges. That type of experience can't be taught. If you're not considered good enough by the people, you won't be hired, you won't have cases, and you won't be learning through experience.

I've been fortunate to have had a successful practice since 2001 in which my clients have been served well and spread the word to their peers.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

My availability. If I'm not in my office due to Court or Hearings or simply due to the fact that it's late at night or the weekend, my phone will forward directly to my personal cell phone if not answered within 2 rings.

When I say my personal cell phone, I mean it. It's the same phone my wife calls when she needs me. So know this, my phone is always with me.
