I have been a resident of Charlotte County for 20 years. I am a proud Marine Corps veteran and served in Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield. After the Marines, I studied physical therapy and worked in Texas and Florida in all types of healthcare settings, but probably most important to my current career: long term care. I’ve treated the elderly population and worked with patients suffering the effects of dementia. I’ve also worked with the elderly as a healthcare provider in various settings including hospitals.
I received an undergraduate degree in Legal Studies from Barry University in Miami Shores in 1999 and graduated from Stetson University College of Law in 2002.
During law school I worked as a intern with the Pinellas County Sate Attorney’s Office and I loved the trial work. After graduation, I accepted a job as a prosecutor in the Twelfth Judicial Circuit where I successfully litigated cases including DUI, theft, sexual battery, homicide, home invasion robbery, vehicular manslaughter and white collar crime. I was proud to serve as a division chief before leaving the office for private practice in 2010.
I married to my wife, Mylene in 2000 and we have three children together: Mackenzie, Ryan and Luke. I am member of First Baptist Church, Port Charlotte and feel fortunate to have answered the call to serve my church as chairman of a capital campaign that raised over 1 million dollars to retire the mortgage debt.
I suppose my primary focus has been on providing great service for my clients: I make house calls when my clients can’t come to my office. I do pro bono work when I see the need. My fees are reasonable and I work to establish a relationships with my clients that reflects my genuine care and affection for them. As a solo practitioner, I want to be the best I can be- one client at a time.
I am a member of the Real Property, Probate, and Trust Law Section of the Florida Bar. I am admitted to practice in Florida and Texas.
