Summary

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.

Legal Answers
5635 Questions Answered

Q. Can this townhouse association build on my land?
A: No, they can't build a house on your lot. You better ask them how they think they can do that. Perhaps you really don't own the lot; I suggest you run it by an attorney.
Q. Can my legal husband try to claim rights to a baby that is not his?
A: The law presumes that a baby born to a wife is the child of the husband. So yes, he can make that claim. Request a DNA test.
Q. Does a "perpetual easement," quoting from the document in hand, transfer to new owners?
A: Usually, yes.
