“As an advocate, a lawyer zealously asserts the client’s position under the rules of the adversary system.”  – Rules of Professional Conduct, The Florida Bar

profileFor the past 30 years, I have zealously represented clients entangled in the criminal justice system.

I received my law degree, with honors, from the University of Miami Law School in 1982.  I am admitted to practice in the courts of Florida, the United States Supreme Court, eight federal courts of appeal, and several federal district courts.  While I am best known as a criminal appellate lawyer, I have also successfully handled criminal trials and civil appeals.

I have won a wide variety of cases – many high profile – from homicide to white collar crime, Internet pornography to Medicaid fraud, drug offenses to tax evasion and money laundering.  There is virtually no criminal offense I have not encountered in my three decades of practice.

When you retain me, you can be assured I will personally represent and tirelessly fight for you.  Your case will not be assigned to an associate or other lawyer.
