Orlando, FL 32804

I am a civil trial lawyer with over 12 years experience handling complex personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice claims and bad faith cases.  I am have tried over 25 complex cases and I consider myself to be a student of the power of persuasion.  I am AV rated by the prestigious Martindale-Hubbell which denotes that I am peer rated for the highest level of professional excellence.  I have also been selected as one of the Top 40 Trial Lawyers Under 40 in the United States.  I am active in various bar associations and I was recently appointed to the Florida Bar Standing Committee for Governmental and Public Policy Advocacy.

I am a graduate of Clemson University and obtained my law degree at Barry University, here in Orlando. I was admitted to practice law in Florida in 2006 and Georgia in 2008. Following law school, I accepted a position with an insurance defense firm and immediately realized my conviction and passion for aggressively pursuing my client’s best interest with civility, integrity and confidence.

For over 11 years, I defended claims of personal injury in the fields of automobile and significant semi-truck accidents. But most importantly, I worked for insurance companies in defending doctors and other health care providers against complex medical malpractice cases. That experience equipped me with the medical knowledge that is necessary to successfully handle complex cases, giving me the definite advantage when assisting victims of accidents and injuries. I am able to understand your medical tests and diagnosis as well as find critical nuances in records and reports. Being able to confidently navigate this portion of your case is a definite advantage for you, the injured victim.

As your attorney, I will use my best efforts and knowledge to vigorously fight for you and your case. I will pursue your best interest with zealous advocacy and I am not afraid to take your case to trial if that is the best course of action. The courtroom is my comfort zone and my priority is to always provide you with an honest opinion of your case. As a lawyer, I firmly believe that I am a true guardian of the law and, therefore, respect the trust you put in me to handle your case and maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct.

Having my own family members involved in serious accidents, I understand that this process can be confusing and even scary at times. When you are injured and up against large insurance companies, it can be intimidating. My goal is to make the process more understandable and straightforward. I am sincerely honored to put my expertise to work for you and offer understanding and compassion along with the knowledge and grit necessary for a successful outcome.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife Jenna and our three children Sam, Michael and Emily; coaching baseball with Orlando Babe Ruth and I am the former President of Freedom Ride, Inc., a Orlando based therapeutic horseback riding program. Additionally, I serve as a Founding Board Member and Vice President of Bible Study Media, Inc., which is a not-for-profit Christian publishing company.
