Helping People Inside The Courtroom And Out

I care about the Fort Walton Beach community where I live. My family and I are actively involved in it, and we take pride in doing our part to strengthen it. I am dedicated to using my knowledge and resources to help people, both inside the courtroom and out.

One of the most notable threads in my career is the work I have done to protect children and work with them to build their future. Even before I started law school I worked as a behavior therapist for children with autism. I eventually became a senior lawyer at Children's Legal Services, the statewide law firm that represents Florida's Department of Children and Families in all judicial matters. I have been certified in the Florida Safety Decision Making Methodology. I carry that background with me today as I defend children accused of crimes and help to protect the parent-child bond in family law cases. Outside of the legal realm, I also serve as a mentor with Take Stock in Children.

Additionally, I have worked as an Assistant State Attorney with the First Judicial Circuit of Florida and as Assistant Regional Counsel with the Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel for Region 1 of Florida. I have received training through the Florida Traffic Safety Resource Prosecution Program in the fields of DUI Trial Advocacy and Prosecuting DUI Refusal Cases. I now use this experience to protect the futures of both adults and juveniles in the community who have had brushes with the law. I believe that a mistake should not derail a person's life. In both my criminal defense and family law practice, I work hard to keep people's lives on track so they can continue to be strong members of the community.
