Biography

I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, where I practiced law from 1977. I was a municipal attorney for the first part of my legal career, and then switched to private practice. I conducted a general private law practice, with emphasis in civil litigation and bankruptcy. I also taught several college-level courses relating to various aspects of the law. In 2004, my family and I moved to Florida and have been here ever since. From 2011 to 2015 I worked for another lawyer in Walton County, assisting him in his office, especially with scheduling of attendance at real estate foreclosure hearings in behalf of secured creditors. I was admitted to the Florida bar in 2016.

Q. My bf passed in May and his sister has taken over as executor. She has his bank account and vehicle through probate
A: Yes, you can have it towed, but I suggest that you first give her a few days written notice.
Q. My friend still has legal property at his ex's place. How can he get it? His name is still on the lease.
A: Yes, he may have a right to the property, but it is not up to the police to enforce that right without a writ of assistance from the courts. Same with the landlord (or "property management").
Q. My fault failure to yield. Changed if other driver was speeding?
A: I assume you mean that his view was partially OBSTRUCTED. And, if your view was obstructed as well, yes, you could well argue that you would have safely made it through the intersection, or he would have been able to stop, if he had not been speeding.
