I began my legal career at the Miami-Dade Public Defender’s office where I honed my craft litigating on behalf of those who ofttimes had no voice. As the first member of my family to graduate from college and then pursue a post-graduate degree, I learned how to persevere and forge my own path. While I was preparing for the medical school entrance examination, a family member became embroiled in a legal issue that caused turmoil in my family. My passion for law and all that it represents, stems from that singular moment.
After graduating from high school in Flint, Michigan, I decided to serve my country and enlisted in the United States Navy. While on active duty, I simultaneously worked towards obtaining my undergraduate degree, often taking examinations at remote duty stations during nontraditional hours. In 2002 I obtained my B.S. in Healthcare and Risk Management from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. In 2003 I decided to attend the University of Miami School of Law and relocated to Florida.
My experience includes government, large and small firm environments. During the course of my career I have handled criminal defense, liability defense, first party property, subrogation, appellate and contractual matters.
I am a member of the American Bar Association, the Wilke D. Ferguson Bar Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Dade Legal Aid/Put Something Back Program, and the Miami-Dade Chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
