An Experienced Attorney Offering Guidance For Your Legal Issue
Transplanted 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.
