I was born and raised in a Pennsylvania suburb just outside of Pittsburgh. After high school I attended California University of Pennsylvania where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, with honors. After graduating college in 2004, I moved to St. Petersburg, FL to begin studying law at Stetson University College of Law. I earned my Juris Doctorate in 2007 and was admitted to The Florida Bar that same year.
Over the next nine years I worked in a high-volume creditor's rights law firm representing the interests of creditors and large debt buying companies. Throughout those years I litigated thousands of lawsuits all over Florida from pre-suit negotiations all the way through trial, wage and bank garnishment and sometimes even through the appeals process.
Now, I take all of the experience I gained representing creditors and debt buyers and bring it to your side of the case so you are provided with the quality representation you deserve. I keep the focus of my firm narrow to ensure the highest level of representation and advocacy for my clients by not trying to be a jack of all trades.
I have been a Central Florida resident since 2009 and I am excited to step out of the corporate world and represent the interests of the members of my community utilizing the skills I acquired throughout those years of practice. I truly believe that my community can be well served by the particular experience and insight which I bring to the table.
I embrace three key operational principles to help guide and streamline my practice as an attorney.
Practical. I believe that while it's important to explore and entertain all possible rights and remedies regarding your situation; it's also important to assimilate and present that information as straightforward, realistic options for my clients.
Insightful. It is important to me to allow adequate time and resources to process through your case and to make certain that I am considering you and your situation as a whole so that we are not limited by a single, narrow viewpoint. My unique background provides me with the means to employ this perspective in my practice.
Informed. This takes on two meanings for me as a practicing attorney. First, it means that I am up to date regarding the current state of the law, economy, and trends in the consumer finance and credit industry. Second, it means that I keep my clients informed about their options, their case, and informed about their overall situation as it relates to my legal representation.
I believe that when implemented together, these three principles allow me to provide outstanding care and legal representation to my clients. I look forward to hearing from you so that we can work together to develop practical solutions to help you navigate through your financial difficulties.
