Criminal Defense

I represent adults and juveniles who have been charged with crimes in central Florida, including traffic violations, sex crimes, theft offenses, violent crimes, property offenses and white-collar crimes. See my page on criminal defense to learn more.

DUI/DWI Defense

I defend individuals who have been charged with driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated, seeking the dismissal of charges when possible and helping minimize penalties through rehabilitative or diversionary programs, if feasible. I carefully review the evidence, police records, eyewitness testimony and other evidence to make certain your constitutional rights were not violated. For more information, see my DUI/DWI defense page .

Drug Crimes

I represent local residents as well as tourists and other visitors who have been charged with violating state or federal drug laws in Florida. I handle the defense of a broad range of felonies and misdemeanors, including possession, sale, distribution, trafficking, manufacture or cultivation of controlled substances.

Family Law and Divorce

I work with men and women at all stages of a divorce or family law matter, from the initial filing through mediation or trial to requests for modification or enforcement of a divorce decree. I handle a wide range of divorce and family law issues, including parenting plans, custody and visitation; child support; alimony or spousal support, property division, paternity actions, dependency and FINS/CINS hearings, and pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
