Pensacola Attorney

joelTransplanted to Northwest Florida through the United States Air Force in 1964, I have grown my roots in the South. I received my B.S. in Business from Troy State University in 1970, then completed law school at Cumberland School of Law in 1973. I am married and have raised four children who have attended public schools in both Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.

After admission to the Florida Bar in 1973, I was enrolled to practice in the United States District Court and Bankruptcy Court in 1974. I served on the Board of Directors of the Escambia-Santa Rosa Bar Association, was a certified Civil and Family Law Mediator.

I began my legal career as an Assistant Public Defender representing my clients in the criminal justice system. Most of my career as an attorney however, has been devoted to assisting families and businesses in the private sector.

I pride myself in personally responding to your needs, providing you with personal attention and remaining accessible to serve your legal needs. No golf games, no extended vacations. It is you, my client who is the focus of my Pensacola-based law practice.

Escambia County Debt Relief Lawyer

Bankruptcy: Never was a four-letter word, and still isn't. If you can no longer pay your bills, the law allows you a fresh start. Please consult with me before you enroll in a "debt settlement program", cash in your retirement or take out a second mortgage. There are more effective ways to bring relief. See the next page to get more details.

Criminal Justice: I have defended hundreds of criminal charges for my clients and have tried many cases before judges and juries.

Family Law: Often the emotional component overwhelms our clients. It is my job to keep us reality-focused in order to get you the best resolution. Our children are entrusted to us by our Creator; they are not property or means to gain an advantage or revenge.

Wills, Probate, Guardianship: Failure to properly document your wishes and designate those who you trust to handle your affairs or care for children can have disastrous effects. Please don't think these types of issues only affect the elderly. An accident, sudden health issues, death, military deployment, and other problems rarely give notice before they strike. You would be surprised to learn what a little bit of planning can do to protect your loved ones and provide you with peace of mind.

Accidental injury or Death: You won't see me on TV, billboards, or other mass media. My clients know where to return when these issues arise ... and they know where to refer their family and friends. Let's discuss your accident case before your mailbox fills with confusing solicitations.

Business: Someone smarter that I once said that "...the business of our country IS business." Sound decisions require sound advice. Did you ever wonder why "accounting and legal" are usually the same line item on a profit and loss statement? Like love and marriage, you can't have one without the other.
