I am originally from Michigan. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in Controllership Accounting. I spent four years in the United States Navy, and I was stationed at Pearl Harbor Naval base in Hawaii. After my time in the Navy, I wanted to move to South Florida because of the year-round warm weather, sunshine, and diversity.
For the next phase of my life, I wanted to work in a field I was passionate about. I wanted to be able to help people and fight against injustice. So, I decided to go to law school. I attended Ave Maria School of Law and after graduating, I went to work in the Miami-Dade County Public Defender’s Office. While serving as an Assistant Public Defender, I handled misdemeanor and felony cases. I have tried cases in misdemeanor court ranging from DUIs, batteries, and in felony court I have tried cases ranging from grand theft, drug trafficking, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, fleeing and eluding, strongarm robbery, and deadly missile throw. One of the greatest rights we have as Americans, is the right to a jury trial and I realized this while serving as an Assistant Public Defender.
Being a trial lawyer is something I enjoy and appreciate. Sometimes, it is the only way to get justice and, at times, the best way.
I practice in the area of personal injury and first-party property insurance. These areas of the law can tear someone’s life apart and leave your life in shambles. It is my job to help you put your life back together the way it was before it was torn apart. And I use my trial skills, fine-tuned through years of trying cases, to help you get your life back.
