Legal issues can be complex. To make matters worse, the idea of spending multiple years trying to navigate the litigation process is a heavy burden to bear. Whether you're dealing with a divorce, a business issue, a landlord-tenant dispute, or anything else, it's important to reach out for help. As a certified mediator and family lawyer, I strive to lessen the burden. By handling the legal aspects of your case with efficiency and empathy, I allow you to focus on what really matters in your life.
I've always been a numbers guy. Graduating with my B.S. in Mathematics from Villanova University and earning my LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Florida led me to work as a CPA in a small accounting office. I never thought I'd be a lawyer. But after my own personal encounter with sub-par family law and mediation services, I knew I could make a difference. My depth and breadth of life experience—from my Navy career as a member of a patrol squadron, to my post as Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina, to my work as a court-appointed mediator in Pinellas County—has allowed me to find great satisfaction in listening to the stories of others and helping them seek fair resolutions.MORE ABOUT ME
