The birth of this office began all the way back in 2001. I was working as as Assistant District Attorney in New York City, prosecuting cases in the Sex Crimes and Domestic Violence Division. In December of that year, I accepted an offer to prosecute General Crimes and Misdemeanors with the State Attorney’s Office in the 20th Judicial Circuit. In 2002 I began my career in Florida prosecuting Criminal cases in Lee County.
In January of 2003, I was finally able to transfer to the Assistant State Attorney’s office in my hometown of Collier County. Here, I prosecuted Criminal cases until that Fall when I opened up my own law office, representing the citizens of Southwest Florida.
In the 17 years that I have been in Collier County, I have handled criminal cases all over South Florida, including Tampa and Hillsborough, Highlands County, Broward and Miami-Dade County, and Hendry and Lee County. In that time, I have counseled my clients in every type of Criminal Charge, in every level of Misdemeanors and Felonies, including those punishable by life in prison. I have handled post-conviction cases, as well, including Violations of Probation.
In addition to Criminal cases, I have also represented parties involved in Repeat Violence or Domestic Violence Injunction matters, more commonly referred to as “Restraining Order” cases. Obtaining an Injunction for Violence or Harassment involves a Hearing in Circuit Court. At times, the parties in these matters also are involved in a related Criminal Law proceeding as well as a Family Law case.
Because of this connection, in 2006, I also began to take on Family Law cases. Over the past 13 years, I have handled Divorces, Paternity cases, Child Custody and Child Support issues, as well as Dependency cases involving the Department of Children and Families.
If you are involved in any Criminal or Family case, please feel free to contact my office any time, 24/7 for a free consultation at 239-643-1250.
