Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

After practicing for more than twenty years and handling well over a thousand employment law cases, I have observed that many of my clients, at some point in the representation, share with me that one of their primary motives in seeking legal assistance is to make sure that what happened to them does not happen to somebody else. As a passionate, competitive trial lawyer who enjoys holding employers accountable for their actions, I help my clients achieve their goal by taking on workplace bullies and not letting go until a reasonable measure of justice has been achieved. Clients often tell me that the most rewarding part of the litigation experience for them is the day that I take the deposition of the person who ultimately caused them to be terminated or otherwise violated their workplace rights, putting them on the hot seat and making them account for the half-truths and outright lies they often tell to cover up their unlawful actions. While the theater of courtroom combat is certainly an adrenalin rush, what I most enjoy about representing employees is watching a client move from frustrated and angry when I first meet them and, after a matter has concluded, seeing that they have obtained satisfaction and closure as a result of my efforts.

I am the first (and only) lawyer from a large family with mostly blue-collar roots. I am proud to be a “Double Gator,” graduating from the University of Florida where I received my bachelor’s degree in English in 1989, with honors, and my law degree, with honors, in 1993, while serving on the Editorial Board of the University of Florida Law Review.
