Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial MediaResponsive Law

I am a native of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I married another lawyer after swearing I never would, and now my wife and I are the proud parents of two young children. Outside of the office, and spending time with my family, my passion is saltwater fishing and marine conservation.

I am a Marital & Family Law Specialist (Florida Bar Board Certified). My law practice for nearly my entire legal career has been focused on representing clients through complicated divorce, alimony, and child custody cases in West Palm Beach and the surrounding South Florida area. Typically when I am involved there is the need to confront a difficult or intimidating person, an important long-term support claim, business valuation or asset tracing issue, or a serious issue involving children.

My goal is to obtain a favorable result for my clients as quickly and efficiently as possible so they can move on to the life they desire and deserve to be living.

I am a divorce litigator. I believe that in many instances the shortest and optimal path to favorably resolving complex family disputes with difficult people requires strategic litigation. I represent my clients through all stages of this process, including at trial, and in Florida’s appellate courts.

While I represent men and women, I focus my practice on helping female clients through divorces from controlling, manipulative, and narcissistic type husbands. These cases are exceptionally challenging on multiple levels. I strive to take on these representations because I know my female clients will have a dramatically improved and transformed-for-the-better life once their divorce is over. Knowing that I am the lead on facilitating this type of life transformation for my clients is professionally rewarding, and is what motivates me each d
