I am a trial attorney with more than nineteen years of courtroom experience helping individuals, couples, and families in Polk and Hardee Counties. I hold a Martindale-Hubbell AV Rating for Ethical Standards and Legal Ability. Due to the nature of my practice, I appear before the judges in the Family Law division practically every day of the week. Through my years of trial work I have grown to recognize which cases may ultimately have to be tried and which cases may be resolved without going to court. By focusing on solutions to my client’s problems rather than creating hostility I save my clients time, money, and stress. It is this approach that has allowed my practice to grow over the years. I will work to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome in your case. Understand that every case is different and that your circumstances may be different from a friend or a neighbor who went through a similar situation. It is very important that you heed the personalized legal advice I will provide you in your case. My staff and I provide a private and personal service. We understand the legal issues involved are sensitive and emotional. We connect with you on a personal level to understand your background, needs, and goals. We pride ourselves on our level of service to our clients, and our attention to your questions and concerns from the start to the conclusion of your case.
