I’ve always had a strong sense of fairness and justice, which is why I went to work for the Public Defender’s Office. I saw a system where the powerless are crushed by a callous uncaring government. So I set myself to the task of zealously advocating for hundreds of clients and defending their rights. I did that from arrest, to arraignment, all the way through to trial. It’s where I honed the art of litigation and trial work.
While defending the rights of the society’s most marginalized people, I learned that a great trial lawyer who cares for his client, knows the law, and has the courage to stand up to the government can vindicate his clients and triumph over a powerful foe.
I do what I do to empower the powerless against the powerful.
I practice in the areas of Criminal Defense, Personal Injury, and Civil Rights Violations. They all involve a common thread: fighting against a larger and supposedly more powerful adversary. That can be the government accusing you of a crime, an insurance company wrongly refusing to pay you, or police officers who abused you or your family. I practice law to help those in need even the odds against the powerful.
I received my Bachelor’s of Science in 2008 from Florida State University. I received my Juris Doctorate in 2012 from Villanova School of Law.
