I obtained a law degree (JD) and a Master of Laws in Taxation (LLM) from the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida.
After graduation I worked for s local international tax law firm before joining the Chief Counsel’s Office of the Internal Revenue Service in Miami. Along with my duties at Chief Counsel's Office, I became a Special Assistant United States Attorney with the U.S. Attorney’s Office handling all aspects of Bankruptcy Court litigation on behalf of the United States Internal Revenue Service. Since leaving the government I have had my own practice largely focusing in the areas of tax matters before the IRS, bankruptcy, estate planning and probate.
I am an Adjunct Professor of law at St. Thomas University School of Law teaching Bankruptcy, Law Office Management and the Bankruptcy Clinic. I taught Debtor-Creditor Rights for 10 years. I have also been a LawLine.comfaculty member since 2012 teaching bankruptcy.
From 2007 to 2010 I served as a commissioner on the Miami-Dade County Commission on Ethics and Public Trust.
