After graduating Highschool from Ft. Myers High School, I attended Tulane University in New Orleans, where I majored in Political Science and where I was inducted into the prestigious Honor Society of Kappa Delta Phi. After graduating with a B.A. I attended Law School at Cumberland School of Law at the Samford University, in Birmingham, Alabama, where I obtained a Juris Doctorate Degree. I then returned to my hometown of Ft. Myers, and began working as a Prosecutor in the 20th Judicial Circuit in Lee County Florida. I obtained my license to practice law in 1995, and continued to prosecute criminals in Lee County, until 1998. I left the State Attorney's Office when I was offered a job at Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman Rice and Purtz where I started practicing in the field of Personal Injury Law. I stayed with GBCRP as a litigation attorney until 2001, when I began work as a senior associate with Geraghty Dougherty and Edwards, PA, where I quickly obtained Partner status. After five years as a partner in the Geraghty firm, I then decided it was time to do things my way and opened my own firm in December of 2005.
I have diligently been practicing personal injury law since 1998. I have been active in the field of criminal defense work, as a former prosecutor, I found a love for the courtroom and practicing criminal defense allows me to hone my litigation skills with constant court appearances.
I am member of the Lee County Bar, as well as the Florida Bar and a member of the Middle District of Florida, United States District Court.
I am also an Eagle Member of the Florida Justice Association formerly the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, an organization dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals and consumers in the State of Florida.
I have been working in the Court Rooms of Lee County for 16 years vigorously protecting the rights of my clients. I look forward to representing you when you are in need of zealous representation to protect your rights for your legal claims.
As an attorney that has worked in government offices, large offices and mid size offices, I have found that having a solo practice gives me the flexibility to represent my clients on a one on one basis ensuring that each claim is handled with the utmost attention to detail with a personal touch that can not be achieved in large scale firms.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Comfort Level
- - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?
Here are a few to get you started:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What are the next steps?
Want to check lawyer discipline?
It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:
- Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
- Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
- Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
