I began my career in the courtroom as an Assistant State Attorney, where I successfully prosecuted criminals in both non-jury and jury trials. I have since advocated for and represented hundreds of clients, both in and out of court. My peers and colleagues in the legal community voted me as one of Florida’s Legal Elite and a Super Lawyer Rising Star.
Prior to becoming an attorney, I am proud to have been a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. During my 8 years of service, I led hundreds of Marines, was deployed numerous times overseas, and was awarded numerous medals, awards, and personal citations. Like most Marines, I am proud of having earned the title "Marine." My continued sense of duty led me to become the President and Founder of the Veterans Bar Association, where I advocate for and represents those who have served in our Armed Forces.
