Choosing a law firm to represent you is an important decision. I was admitted to The Florida Bar in 1998 after graduating from the University Of Miami School Of Law in 1996. I began my legal career as a volunteer attorney in the Miami Dade Public Defenders Office. I also worked as an associate for a firm in South Florida that handles real estate related matters. In 2007 I opened my own law practice and in 2009 I began to represent clients in Bankruptcy matters. I am admitted to the United States District Court for the Middle and Southern District of Florida. I invite you to compare my qualifications and experience to those of other attorneys you might be considering.
