Community

My family has been a part of the Treasure Coast and Lake Okeechobee communities for generations. Like you, I was reared to work hard, live with integrity, and to help my neighbors in their time of need. For the last 30 years, I have been fighting for the rights of my fellow Floridians who have suffered tragic injuries, losses and injustices. Outside of the courtroom, I also strive to help make my community a better place for families to live. Here are a few of the ways my team has been involved in supporting the Treasure Coast and Lake Okeechobee communities.
