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

I wanted to be a lawyer since I was a kid. I would watch B&W shows of "Perry Mason" and "The Defenders" with my parents, loved the drama but particularly the skill of the lawyers on both sides.

So, it was logical to join the State Attorney's Office in Miami right out of law school where I learned how the state puts their cases together. Those years of experience has made me a better defense lawyer.
