I graduated from Barry University School of Law with a Juris Doctor. Prior to attending law school, I worked at a local law firm as a paralegal and law clerk, while putting myself through college and law school. After graduation, I continued to work as an associate attorney at the same firm. It was at this firm that I had the pleasure of representing individuals in criminal defense, civil matters, and bankruptcy. I also had the opportunity to represent businesses in corporate matters and commercial transactions. Before moving to St. Petersburg in 2001, I worked in Yellowstone National Park and Key West as a chef. I currently live in Clearwater with my wife Wendy, our two dogs, and cat. In addition to all Florida state courts, I am also admitted to practice in Federal Courts in the Middle District and the Southern District of Florida. I am a criminal defense attorney with an emphasis on cannabis related crimes. I also help clients organize businesses who want to enter the cannabis industry, when cannabis is legalized in Florida. I will consult with you and provide advice on how to start and run a medicinal marijuana business in compliance with state and federal laws. I will meet with you and explore your options and help prepare you to get started in the cannabis industry once legislation is passed by Florida lawmakers, or once an amendment is passed in 2016. After establishing your business, I can also continue to represent the business as corporate counsel to ensure compliance with what is expected to be a highly regulated market. In addition, I also represent individuals who have been injured in automobile accidents, represent parties being sued by credit card companies, and I represent homeowners who are in foreclosure and want to save their home. I will provide you personalized attention from the beginning of your case through resolution. I will personally work on your case from beginning to end.
