My accomplishments are an outgrowth of my extensive trial experience. I have been working in the courtroom for 31 years. I was an Assistant Public Defender for Palm Beach County, serving as the Chief of the Felony Division and later as the Chief of the Capital Crimes (Homicide) Division. Many of the private criminal attorneys now practicing in Palm Beach County were originally trained or supervised by me. Because of this experience in major crimes, I am one of only a dozen attorneys in Palm Beach County who are qualified to sit as the first-chair attorney in First-Degree Capital Murder Cases.
I also worked as an Assistant State Attorney, handling a wide range of crimes. Because of my significant courtroom exposure, I am familiar with prosecutors and judges and the strategies that work best when dealing with them.
I undertake criminal appeals on a limited basis. In these matters, I collaborate with Louis G. Carres, a celebrated Criminal Appellate Attorney with over 40 years of experience and who has personally handled hundreds of criminal appeals throughout Florida. We have achieved noteworthy results in the appellate arena.
