PROTECTING YOUR REPUTATION, LIVELIHOOD, AND RIGHTS!

I like to practice the areas of law that I have directly experienced myself, so I can capture my client's story in the courtroom and bring it to life whether before a Judge or a Jury. My experience of living out these issues, has allowed me to have insight beyond the law & pick up on issues not commonly seen by the average attorney. I was not the typical attorney who went to law school right after my college degree in my early 20s. What led me to practicing law, was experiencing injustice during my life firsthand. I knew to actually stop injustice, I needed to learn the laws and gain a voice in the courtroom. Knowledge is power and I truly believed that. I no longer felt in the dark about matters I was dealing with, I no longer felt alone. Once I became an attorney, I learned quickly how many other people were experiences my pain. I learned, many people had much worse situations then I had. Trust me, I thought my issues was as bad as it got -- I was sadly mistaken.
After my divorce, I have found myself harmed by the effects of parental alienation and high conflict co-parenting. As my life continued to play out and I finally got a fresh start in life, my business and reputation would be harmed by the wrongful acts of 3rd parties. Sometimes that damage caused by the actions of 3rd parties is permanent and no amount of money can remedy it. I learned really fast the evils that lie within human beings and hoped I could learn to trust again. I learned the more successful you become, the more people are motivated to harm you. I learned how ignorant people can be when they believe anything told to them. I spent hours & representing as many people as I could in trial, to become highly knowledgeable in how to get evidence in front of a Court because that is a complex skill in itself. I took cases across the state of Florida to learn how to deal with different personalities from a multitude of different Judges. I was forced to learn case law from every district and meet and argue against attorney from around the state. I always believed if you do something go 200% and become the best you can be. I slowly watched myself transform into an Attorney that I would want for myself.
As I became more known and my law firm started to grow at a fast rate, I found out that not only would I have to defend personal attacks made by adversarial attorneys, I would have to defend attacks by people who wanted something from me and if I did not agree to their request they would take action to harm my business and self. I was betrayed by the people I thought I could trust the most.
Although I tell you this personal story, I am not here as an attorney to be your therapist or friend. Although you will develop a relationship with me during your litigation, I have accepted the personal relationship we develop will come to an end after litigation. I would hope that I am that attorney for you who touched your life and gave you a voice to tell your story and get justice. I take my personal experience, knowledge, and skills acquired in my own fight for my life & business, as well as, the fight I have fought for many clients across the state of Florida and give that to every client I represent.
