About Us

The official biography is below, but here is a little history about me:

I was born in Miami, Florida and raised in a little town in south central Florida called Labelle.  After 14 years in Florida, my family moved to Columbia, Pennsylvania, the town where my father was raised.  After graduating from High school in 1988, I spent the next three years doing every type of job you can imagine, trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life.

In 1991, I decided that college was right for me and I enrolled in Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.  In 1995, I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts, majoring in both History and Government.  Following graduation, I enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and then transferred to the University of Miami School of Law in Coral Gables, Florida.  While in law school, I clerked for Coulter Corporation and worked with the City of Miami’s attorney office. In 1998, I graduated magna cum laude from law school and took an associate position with Alston & Bird, the largest law firm in Georgia.  After two years in the real estate division, I left Alston & Bird and went to Dow, Lohnes & Albertson, where I spent the next three years working in a myriad of real estate, telecommunications and business transactions.  The experience I gained working at these two law firms were second to none. 


In 2003, I started my own firm with the desire to provide the highest quality legal services, at the lowest possible costs to my clients.  As the years rolled by, advancements in technology has made this pursuit even easier and I am very proud to say that the quality of the services I provide to my clients are second to none.
