Linda earned her undergraduate degree in 1988 and her law degree in 1991 at the University of Florida (Go Gators!). Prior to opening her own practice in 1997, Linda worked for three law firms. Linda has successfully defended trial verdicts through appeals, and has changed the law through appellate opinions. With the help of her team, her firm has obtained successful jury verdicts and settlements for men, women, and children who were injured or killed as a result of negligence.
These successful claims include injuries from car crashes, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, dog bites, criminal assaults, nursing home negligence, medical malpractice, defective products, and defective hot water heaters that caused burns.
Her legal memberships span local, state, and national organizations and include Florida Justice Association, Central Florida Trial Lawyers,The Florida Bar, and Martindale. These organizations are for attorneys who represent those who are injured through the mistakes of others. Through these, she remains current with changes and innovations in the law. In addition, she regularly attends continuing legal education seminars, which address changes in the law, as well as ways to be a more efficient and effective lawyer.
Taking the time to meet with clients one-on-one allows Linda to fully understand their specific claims. Friends and family refer most of her clients, and those word-of-mouth referrals reflect the great relationships that she has built with her clients over the years.
After growing up on Air Force bases worldwide, Linda’s family settled in Florida while she was in elementary school. Shortly after receiving her law degree, Linda moved to Orlando to practice law and has lived there ever since.
When Linda is not practicing law, her favorite activity is spending time with her husband, Bill, of 25 years and their two sons. She also takes pleasure in riding her horse, enjoying the beach and curling up with a good book.
