Thank you for visiting my website. Here you will find information about my law practice.
I have been admitted to the practice of law since 1989. My first years were spent at a large firm in New York that represented large corporations. I eventually realized that I wanted to represent individuals with legal issues that touched their personal lives such as estate planning and divorce. My primary areas of practice are Family Law, including: divorce, child custody (now called the Parenting Plan), child support and visitation (now called timesharing), adoption and Estate Planning, including the preparation of last wills, trusts, living wills, and powers of attorney. I focus on legal issues faced by members of Tampa Bay’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community, including same sex divorce. I have 14 years of experience in each of these areas.
I believe that the keys to long-term success are unfailing integrity in my client representation, strong knowledge of the law, and excellent communication with my clients.
I view my role as both your attorney and your legal counselor. I stand ready to be a vigorous advocate of your legal rights. I also understand that your best interest is most often served by helping you reach a peaceful resolution in your legal matter. I tailor my approach to your needs and your case.

• Divorce & Family Law – Divorce, Child Custody & Child Support, Stepparent Adoption
• Alternative Family Law or LGBT Law – Same Sex Divorce, Second Parent Adoption, Name Change, Domestic Partner Agreements
