Serving Those Who Serve Our Country

Since 1984 I have been representing individuals and families in the litigation and resolution of family law disputes. My practice is particularly focused on working with families of those serving in our armed forces. Oftentimes, unique issues face a military family contemplating divorce. My extensive experience working with military families allows me to educate my clients on how divorce will impact their military benefits, such as pensions and survivor benefits.

My experience also allows me to anticipate and handle these unique circumstances. In addition to the special implications for military families, divorce also presents issues such as child support, spousal maintenance, custody and visitation of the children and the division of marital assets. I work hard to ensure that the agreements into which my clients enter on these issues are realistic, while also ensuring that they help my clients achieve their goals.

Military Consulting Attorney:

I am entering into a semi-retired phase of my practice and find that I can be useful as a military family law consulting attorney, a position which I have found is useful and allows a general family practice attorney to handle a military divorce case without fear of making a significant error. I can consult with one side, or act as a neutral consultant and assist both sides explore their options, with consent of all parties.

Expert Witness:

I have qualified numerous times in the circuit courts of the State of Florida as an expert witness in the area of military pensions and survivor benefits. Although being an expert witness has never been a large part of my practice, I find that there is a need for such testimony in some cases, to insure that the court has the information it needs to fairly adjudicate a case. I am never for or against any party, and render an independent opinion in all cases.
