Thirty-Eight years of trial practice experience in all areas of civil litigation including personal injury (both plaintiff and defense), first and third party insurance claims, owner-contractor construction disputes, employment law, and general civil corporate matters. As a former Allstate Insurance Company claims adjuster, as well as an independent adjuster prior to law school, I have had considerable experience in bodily injury and wrongful death claims handling. My current practice consists of both plaintiff and defense litigation.

Other experience has included business and construction litigation; insurance and property damage claims; as well as Mediating hundreds of disputes between unit owners, developers, contractors, and Condominium Associations (pursuant to F.S. 718) and Home Owners Associations (pursuant to F.S. 720). Of these, many of the cases have involved Windstorm and Flood damage claims, as well as mold remediation and general repairs secondary to the Hurricane Season of 2004. Experience also includes Mediating Eminent Domain issues (pursuant to F.S. 73) as well as Mediating Probate, Guardianship, and other Estate matters.
