Our criminal justice system is designed to protect the innocent. However, in so doing, we must likewise defend the guilty. For this reason, it is critical that every person accused of a crime—whether truly innocent or guilty—be represented equally and assertively.
This is my passion.
Since beginning my career, I have practiced exclusively criminal law. Early on, I focused on criminal trial proceedings. I have been lead counsel in over 130 jury trials—both state and federal—twenty-six of which were homicides. I am death penalty certified and have been lead counsel in ten death penalty jury trials. I also ran for the elected position of Public Defender for Jacksonville in 2012, hoping to make some necessary changes.
My experience in criminal trials eventually led me into the fields of postconviction and criminal appellate law. An in-depth understanding of trial process and procedure is essential to successfully pleading cases post-conviction. I have been practicing postconviction work for over thirteen years.
I earned my Juris Doctor from the Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama. I completed my undergraduate in English at the University of Florida.
