My calling in life is to utilize my advocacy talents for the purpose of serving people in our community. Specifically, my mission is to serve injured people who need help fighting the insurance companies that refuse to pay the true measure of my client’s harms and losses.
I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York. My undergrad degree was a Bachelor of Science in Communications from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I then graduated Magna Cum Laude from Syracuse University College of Law where I finished in the top 8% of my law school class. In law school, I was inducted into the Moot Court Honor Society and the Justinian Honorary Law Society; I made the Dean’s List for five consecutive semesters; I was a finalist in the prestigious MacKenzie Lewis Appellate Advocacy Competition; and, I received the top grade in Civil Procedure.
After law school, I initially practiced in construction litigation where I litigated cases in 15 different states. I drafted a winning Appellate Brief in my first year out of law school, and I won my first trial as first chair in my second year of practice. Later, I transitioned into helping medical providers. I was chosen by a Tallahassee judge to give a statewide presentation on the nuances of the Florida motor vehicle No-Fault Law, and I was also chosen by my peers to give presentations on how to successfully prevail against insurance companies in No-Fault litigation.
Outside of law, I founded and led a non-profit corporation here in Orlando whose purpose was to increase the presence of volunteers in the community for the purpose of serving those in need—children with cancer, the homeless community, and special needs children. For these efforts, I was a finalist for News 13’s Everyday Hero award in 2016.
I live in Winter Garden with my wife, Cindy, who I met while teaching English at a University in Medellin, Colombia. We enjoy going for hikes in nature with our beloved Yorkie, Toby. We are very committed to our faith and our family.
Now I serve people, not corporations. Prior to joining the Rubenstein Law team, I set the Associate record at my last law firm for most money recovered for clients in a year. I recovered $2,900,000.00 for clients during the pandemic year despite only maintaining a caseload of 30 cases. I represent injured people who are forced to fight insurance companies across an array of personal injury practice areas, including:
