I grew up in the Sarasota area, attending Cardinal Mooney High School. After High School, I went to the University of Florida where I studied computer engineering. After receiving my Bachelors in Science degree, I moved to California where I worked for a computer company designing software. A few years later, I decided to go to law school, and attended Southwestern University School of Law. While in school, I worked for the United States Attorney's Office in Las Vegas prosecuting federal crimes. It was there that I realized I had a natural ability doing criminal trial work and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. After law school, I moved back to Florida and worked for the Public Defender's Office in Pinellas County. A year later, I had the opportunity to come home to Sarasota working for the Sarasota City Attorney's Office. I accepted the position as Municipal Prosecutor and worked for the next 4.5 years prosecuting city crimes before opening my own office practicing criminal defense. Several years later I combined forces with another powerful criminal defense firm to create The Law Place in June of 2015. We currently practice criminal, family and personal injury. We have a team of amazing lawyers who truly care about their clients.
