About

"SERVING FLORIDA FAMILIES IS MY PASSION"

Whether your case involves difficult financial issues or more straightforward disputes, I have the necessary knowledge, experience, and ability to assist as a mediator.

I started this practice because I want to help people by making the mediation process as productive and cost-effective as possible. Although a mediator can never guarantee results, I can promise that each case receives individualized attention and all parties and their attorneys are treated with respect and professionalism.

By way of background, I am a Florida native with thirty-three years of experience as a licensed Florida attorney, including almost twenty-one years as a trial judge in the 12th Judicial Circuit (Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto counties).

During that time, I handled a variety of cases, but exclusively family cases during my last several years on the bench. I have handled cases from the simple to the highly complex, and everything in between.

Serving Florida families is my passion. Whether your case involves difficult financial issues or more straightforward disputes, I have the necessary knowledge, experience, and ability to assist as a mediator.

I firmly believe that mediation is time well spent. Thank you for stopping by.
