My practice has been limited to Family Law since 1996. Relying on my experience and expertise as a Florida Supreme Court Board Certified Family Law Attorney, I will protect, educate and guide you throughout a challenging and difficult process. Those challenges can arise in a divorce, modification/enforcement, or prenuptial agreement. Whatever the case, I want my clients to be in a position to make decisions in the best interest of themselves and their families while also maintaining their dignity and self-esteem. Taking a case to trial is a complex and expensive affair, and that is why negotiating a successful settlement is always a priority. Either through trial or settlement, properly preparing for trial is the best method of reaching a successful and satisfactory result.
