Claimed Lawyer ProfileLII Gold

Florida Bar Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer. Considered an expert or Specialist in Civil Trial Law. Less than 2% can claim this distinction. I am honored to be one of the less that 5% of Florida Lawyers named a Florida Super Lawyer. I am rated the highest possible rating on AVVO; a ten out of ten.

Unfortunately many of the so called competitors are really just settlement mills. In plain English what that does that mean to you? You're shortchanged in one of the most important events of your life. In essence you're injured twice. DON"T LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU! I promise you will meet with me and work with me personally on your claim. Although my office has wonderful efficient support staff, I believe if you are to pay an attorney's fee, you sh
