First and foremost, I’m a regular Joe, just like anybody else.
I know what it’s like to deal with insurance companies when a loved one is suffering through expensive medical treatments. When I was growing up, my sister battled a serious illness, and my family had to fight constantly to get her the treatment and benefits she deserved.
No stranger to hard work, standing up for those in need, and giving back to the community, I spent over a decade working in and operating group homes for developmentally disabled adults and children before law school.
While attending Florida A & M University College of Law in Orlando, Florida, I proudly served as Business Managing Editor for Law Review and Student President of Stonewall LGBTQA Association. My summers were spent interning for Orange County Public Schools and local personal injury attorneys. Preparing to enter the legal practice in my final year, I clerked with the Office of the Judges of Compensation Claims.
After graduating with honors, I began working with insurance defense firms. It was a great starting place where I gained valuable experience. But, I had enough of the unfairness I saw coming from insurance companies and the ways they treat good everyday people. I made it a point to go out on my own to represent the underdog. People like my sister. People like us. The people who deserve it most.
