Over the years many of my clients have asked why I became a lawyer. My choice was sparked by an injustice suffered by a family member. I was in grade school when my dad was hit by a drunk driver who was from a wealthy family. It appeared that she received preferential treatment because of her wealth.
From that day my passion for justice was ignited. Over the years it was fueled by meeting individuals who were not treated fairly in the civil or criminal justice system. Before going to law school I listened to people who had been wronged in some way and did not know where to tum. Many could not afford to hire a lawyer to help them.
For the past 20 years, Tim and I have devoted our practice to personal injury and wrongful death cases. Our firm has successfully represented thousands of people who deserve to be compensated for their injuries. Most of our clients are Florida residents, living in Bradenton, Charlotte, Manatee and Sarasota Counties. Some are snowbirds enjoying a warm winter. Others come from across the pond enjoying 'holiday' in Florida.
I have served as a legal guest lecturer and give back to the community through volunteer service. I have been actively involved in our education system for the past fifteen years. To combat Caps on Damages and "Tort Reform" which limits victims' rights, I have spent countless hours campaigning for those who will best serve the interests of my clients and the middle class.
