When I entered college in Dallas, Texas in 1981, I wasnâ€™t the smartest student; nor, the best athlete â€“I was, however, determined to compete with the best and brightest and to make my own mark on the university academic and athletic rolls. As a baseball and basketball player for the Crusaders, I learned to compete and win against bigger and stronger opponents. I carried that competitive drive with me to law school at Ole Miss where I excelled and earned my classmate's confidence to become the President of the Law School Student Body. For the last 30 years, I have represented doctors, lawyers, teachers, cops, robbers, professional athletes, wrestlers, actors, and folk from all walks of life. I have tried cases against bigger and stronger opponents. I have tried cases against much weaker opponents. While I have learned to respect all opponents, I fear no one. I succeed because I have surrounded myself with the best, and brightest partners, associates and support staff possible. Together, our mission is to lead our clients through the confusion and uncertainty they feel and deliver to them a feeling of strength, confidence, and success. Whether it's leading a class in law school; or, leading the best law firm in Florida against bigger, richer insurance companies, my competitive nature strives to compete â€¦ and when I compete, I want to win. To me, it doesnâ€™t matter how large or impressive my opponent might seem. I fight and compete for my client and strive to win. In litigation, we donâ€™t play because we love the game. We work hard because we â€œmustâ€ win â€” there is no second place in a trial. My sole desire is to see my client come out on top. This is the reason that I come to work. I work to win. Simple as thatâ€¦I work to win.
