Local People. Local Practice. Local Knowledge.

I'm a proud native of Fort Myers, Florida, and my local roots here have helped me plan my career as a lawyer in this community. Since a very young age, I've always had a passion for helping people, especially when they are in trouble, either hurt in an accident that wasn't their fault, or some other problem that requires legal help. I decided to dedicate my career to the practice of personal injury law, and to defending people who have been arrested for or accused of a crime. That's where I felt I could do the most good.

The people I've come to know and have helped over my nearly 20 years as an attorney in Southwest Florida have been the key to shaping my goals in my chosen profession – to do the very best I can on their behalf, and to make sure their full legal rights are aggressively protected.

I began my law career as an Assistant State Attorney with the 20th Judicial Circuit, and am a member of The Florida Bar, the Lee County Personal Injury Association, The Lee County Bar Association, The Federal Bar Association, The Federal Court of the Middle and Northern Districts, The Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. I hold a Criminology degree from the University of South Florida, and attained my Juris Doctor from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School.

While working in the State Attorney's office, I received certification in Juvenile Justice and Delinquency from the U.S. Department of Justice.  Working with and listening to kids who need real help has been one of the most rewarding parts of my legal career. I enjoy being closely involved with many local community and civic organizations, and you can read more about that here:

After the State Attorney's office, I went to work with a large local law firm as a trial attorney, and also developed some truly remarkable relationships along the way. In 2000, I teamed up with attorneys Mike Noone, Ray Racila and Jerry Sico to start our own personal injury law firm. The 20th Judicial Circuit's first State's Attorney, Joseph D'Alessandro, joined our firm in 2004. We've been fortunate to have discovered real and lasting friendships with our clients over our years in business, and that is what I am most proud of. To see some short videos on some our thoughts on how we run our law firm, or to download any of our free reports on a variety of topics that will answer some of your legal questions, please click here:

I'm not exactly like many other attorneys you may know. My clients can reach me day or night, weekends too. I do enjoy a lot of the great outdoor life we have here, boating and fishing with my friends and family. But my clients all get my cell phone number and they can rest assured I'll always return any missed calls, and fast. As a person and as your attorney, I want to always be available to help you through your situation.

You can see on our website that attorneys at our firm have attained the highest possible AV Preeminent attorney rating by Martindale-Hubbell, and are members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. You can also read what other attorneys I've worked with have to say about my work ethic at my AVVO Attorney profile, here:

But what I'd really like you to know is that I love what I do, and that's helping people who have been hurt through no fault of their own, or who may be in some kind of legal trouble and don't know where to turn. By listening to your concerns about your personal situation, I go to work for you, standing up to unrelenting insurance giants and making sure you receive everything you deserve under the law.

If you find yourself in a difficult legal situation, or if you or a loved one have been seriously hurt in any type of accident and you need help, call me. It won't cost a dime to sit down and talk about the details of your situation and find out how we can help. You can reach me at 239-461-5508, or click on the box below to send me a confidential email message.

"We're local attorneys. We practice law in the same place where we raise our family. We think that's important for you to know."
