I started my law enforcement career when I was hired by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office at the age of 19. I was promoted to corporal and worked as a field training officer and traffic homicide investigator. While working as a deputy, I attended college part-time and earned my degree in business finance. I left the Sheriff's Office to attend law school at the University of Florida. I have practice law in Pinellas County for 14 years in the areas of civil litigation, estate planning, probate, and corporate law. I live in Palm Harbor with my wife and two children.
