office800x600Since my graduation from Stetson College of Law in 1975, I continue to handle cases in only two areas of law:

  • Criminal Defense
  • Family Law

I have appeared in Court on behalf of the accused and family law litigants in Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando, Hillsborough, Citrus, Orange, Polk, and Sumter Counties.

I believe that an attorney’s experience is vital to the accused and the family law litigant when selecting counsel for representation.  I have nearly forty (40) years of trial experience as set forth more fully under CRIMINAL DEFENSE  AND FAMILY LAW.

Martindale-Hubbell is a worldwide ratings service established in 1868 applicable only to attorneys.  The attorney is rated on general ethical standards and legal ability.  Legal ability ratings are based on performance on a scale of one (1) to five (5).  (One is the lowest, five the highest.)  These ratings are assigned based upon surveys to local attorneys and judges.  My current rating means “a very high ethical standard” and “distinguished” in my field(s) with a 4.4 out of 5 peer rating.

When selecting an attorney, it’s not only important to focus on experience, it’s important to find one that really listens to you, weighs the pros and cons of your individual case, and aids you in making the right decisions.

Consider the information provided here as merely a signpost towards selecting an attorney.
