I have been practicing Criminal Defense since 2005. I began as a paid legal intern for the Public Defender's Office in Orlando while still in Law School and remained working there after passing the Florida Bar and becoming an attorney.

With over 60 Jury Trials under my belt, I have established a reputation as a fearless attorney - ready, willing, and eager to take any case to trial.

Whether a case goes to Trial is a decision entirely up to the defendant, but it is important to know that you have an attorney ready to do so, should you choose.

I have handled cases ranging from petit theft to robbery and murder. I also handle Injunctions.

Not every case is a Trial case, and many client's with to resolve their cases without a Jury Trial. There are many alternatives to going to Trial, and careful planning is required to find the result best suited to each client.

Call me and we can discuss which route is best for you.

Legal Answers
Q. Dad said cop showed up at his job and said I (his daughter) am in serious trouble. They are doing an investigation.
A: Yes, it could be true. You can hire a lawyer to investigate the matter for you. If there is a warrant for your arrest then your lawyer can arrange with a bondsperson to have you do a 'walk-through' at the jail. A 'walk-through' is when you turn yourself in to the jail but the bondsperson has already posted your bond so you only spend a few hours in jail. They probably asked your father because they could not find you and they figured he would tell you they are looking for you.
Q. Can I use my Allstate accident insurance for a felony battery? My spouse was assaulted and has some brain damage.
A: For starters, read the policy to see what it covers and then call Allstate and ask them.
Q. Who should I report Fraud of a legal document to?
A: Subpoena her to the Court hearing so she can tell the judge. If the court hearing has already taken place, call the judge's judicial assistant and let her know, see if yo can get a re-hearing and bring it up to the judge.
