We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations. - Chuck Swindell

About Me

Although I have lived across the Southeast United States, I have always called Florida home. Born in Hialeah and raised in South Florida, my family instilled in me a drive to work hard and serve others. My greatest joy comes from playing a role in making a difference in someone else’s life and is why I am passionate about representing injured people and their families, and seeking the compensation they deserve.

Outside of work, I continue to serve others through volunteering with organizations such as the Junior League of Jacksonville, City Rescue Mission, Habitat for Humanity, and the Women’s Center of Jacksonville. I also love spending time with my two dogs and friends.
