Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial MediaResponsive Law

I focus my practice on business transactions and disputes. Love working with international clients. In 2017-2019 I spent two years living and working as the senior counsel in the Middle East, advising C-suite executives on quarter-billion-dollar PPP projects. My clients either live in the US and do business abroad, or they are foreign nationals investing in the US. I have experience in international business transactions in Canada, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. I also represent clients in federal court, having been admitted to several federal courts and a federal trial bar in the US. 

Our law firm has been set-up to represent clients effectively and remotely for several years. This is not a new COVID-related adjustment for us. 

As for my personal bio, I have lived or spent months at-a-time in Riyadh, Ukraine, Italy, France, Cyprus, Mexico City and other incredible places around the globe. It is so wonderful when I get to meet my clients in person and for the first time long after I began to represent them, but simply because our paths have crossed in their locale. Safe to say, I love to travel. I also love, live and breathe pickleball. I am out on the courts playing every single morning (7am start), unless I have a conference call with you or a court hearing (smile).

Speaking Engagements
Sexual Harrassment in the Workplace in Saudi Arabia, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center
Saudi Arabia passed its first law against sexual harassment in 2018. KFSH&RC, a highly international organization, took the initiative to cover this important topic for its diverse workforce. Putting together a presentation on such a sensitive subject for people from various cultural and religious backgrounds was complex and delicate task. The fact that the presentation was well-received by both executives and employees from around 100 countries is a testament to the success of this initiative.

Legal Answers
219 Questions Answered
Q. Can my attorney threaten me with fees for asking questions about the case?
A: Lawyers get paid for the time spent, any and all time, whether it is speaking with a client or thinking about their case or typing out a legal brief. Sounds like your lawyer does not believe he'll get paid for his time, just guessing here. The fact that you think he did nothing and your retainer has been exhausted shows the disconnect between what you think is billable time and what is, in fact, billable.
Q. where can I find collier county florida local court rules. i had a lawyer by pass a hearing by emailing the judge
A: There is a 15-day rule to respond, some motions are excluded, and it is flexible.

Litigation is complex, I am sure you knew that.

Judges also have their own standing orders on how they treat different types of motions, what is required for their submission, etc. Some Judges take it upon themselves to rule without hearing, not to waste judicial resources. Some Motions are submitted as "unopposed" or "agreed to" motions.

Good luck.
Q. I'm being sued for replevin on a rent to own shed. I missed the first summons but judge denied default for 7.060 & 7.170
A: Sounds like it is in small claims court and you are required to appear. The Judge or the court personnel will explain what is happening and what you are expected to do next. But you must enter an appearance or the other side will obtain a judgment against you.

Good luck.
