Experience in the area

22 years of litigating accident claims, representing 1000's of victims, and recovering millions of dollars for my client's injuries and claims.

I have been recognized by Florida Trend Magazine as Florida's "Legal Elite" and by Super Lawyers since 2011, awards given to less than 5% of attorneys in Florida.
