In my twenty years of experience as a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney, I have handled thousands of criminal cases, ranging from 2nd Degree Misdemeanors all the way to Capital Felonies, including Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases, Domestic Violence cases, Drug cases, Sex Crimes, and Homicides.
I have now opened my own practice dedicated to representing people in Volusia and Seminole counties and other Central Florida areas charged with a criminal offense. I am licensed to practice law in both the state and federal courts of Florida. As a former prosecutor, I understand how criminal charges are reviewed by the State Attorney’s Office, including what they look for to reduce or even dismiss a case. I use these skills and experience to provide my clients with an insightful defense strategy to prepare and defend their cases.
I have spent hundreds of hours in trial over the course of my career and over 110 jury trials, and I use that experience to assess each and every case and to provide the best possible defense that I can to my clients. As an informed consumer of legal services, you need to be certain you have chosen a law firm where you will be satisfied with not only the representation, but with the service as well, and so I strive to be approachable and responsive, as well as effective and efficient. I have also been recognized for achieving the Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating, awarded to only those lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability.
I accept most major credit cards, and I offer payment plans based on your individual needs. In criminal cases, there are often deadlines for filing motions and scheduling hearings, so please call as soon as possible to speak with me or to schedule an appointment. I am available for evening and weekend appointments. If you decide to hire me, I will handle all negotiations with the State Attorney and will appear on your behalf at scheduled court dates. Please call or email me today to schedule your free and confidential consultation!
