Biography

I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, where I practiced law from 1977. I was a municipal attorney for the first part of my legal career, and then switched to private practice. I conducted a general private law practice, with emphasis in civil litigation and bankruptcy. I also taught several college-level courses relating to various aspects of the law. In 2004, my family and I moved to Florida and have been here ever since. From 2011 to 2015 I worked for another lawyer in Walton County, assisting him in his office, especially with scheduling of attendance at real estate foreclosure hearings in behalf of secured creditors. I was admitted to the Florida bar in 2016.

Q. Can a felon tow a girlfriends travel camper if the girlfriend has a pistol locked in a secure box unloaded in the campe?
A: Yes, she can do this, assuming she complies with the laws of each state the two of you travel through. Whether you, as a convicted felon, can get in trouble is another story.
Q. What is the statute of limitation to renew a case dismissed without prejudice?
A: I believe it would be the SOL for filing the lawsuit initially. Thus, if the events giving rise to the suit happened 2 1/2 years ago, the SOL is four years, and it was dismissed without prejudice 3 1/2 years after the events happened, you would have 1/2 year in which to reopen.
Q. What can I do if someone used a hidden camera in there house to record me using the restroom?
A: Report it to the police for possible criminal prosecution.
