Criminal Defense

In no other area of law is it more important to have an experienced and talented trial attorney than in a criminal defense setting.

Personal Injury

I have represented people in “personal injury” matters for over a decade and have been fortunate to be successful in a number cases.

Education Law

Many parents & students do not realize the effect that a reprimand, suspension or expulsion can have a their child’s educational goals.

DUI, DWI, Probation

Whether a person is, ultimately, “Guilty or “Not Guilty” of “DUI” will depend on the strengths and weaknesses of evidence.

Attorney At Law

If you have never been exposed to the Criminal Justice System or been fortunate enough to have never been the victim of an injury incident (automobile accident, slip and fall, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse), then you are one of the lucky ones. The reality is that you, a friend, a family member, or acquaintance, at some time will need help in at least one of these areas of law. I have been representing people in these areas for over twenty (20) years. A person in the criminal justice system for the first time is facing a possible arrest, a public criminal accusation, fines, probation, incarceration and, most seriously, a criminal conviction that will stick to every job, apartment, or school application for the rest of your life. Your attorney will examine the evidence, question the witnesses, and research the law. Your lawyer will be there with you in court to address the judge and deal with the prosecutor to make sure the case is resolved fairly and appropriately, considering all of the circumstances. If the case can not be resolved, your lawyer will be with you in trial, in front of a judge and jury, and will be the only person in the room fighting for you. A personal injury case is certainly different than a criminal matter but, for many people, the stakes can be nearly as high.

Imagine this situation: your spouse is on I-4 returning from Orlando and is involved in a serious motor vehicle accident. The accident was caused by the other driver, but right now that doesn’t matter. The injuries are severe, and will require a lengthy and expensive hospital stay, followed by a long rehabilitation. The aftermath can be financial and emotional ruin. You and your spouse will be faced with the following questions:

Does the other driver have insurance and how much is available?


Does the other driver have insurance and
how much is available?


What, if anything,
does my insurance cover?


Who pays for medical expenses now, next year or several years from now that were caused by the accident?


How do we get the
car replaced?


What about lost work
and wages?

A good lawyer will guide you through the financial minefield caused by the accident and will fight to make sure that the other driver and his insurance carrier are forced to pay everything that the law requires. I have been representing people in Pinellas County for over twenty (20) years. I have been there to answer questions, research the issues, and fight for the client.
