I began my legal career as an Assistant Public Defender with the Orange County Public Defender's Office in Orlando, FL.  I stayed at this office for 9.5 years, starting as a misdemeanor attorney and then moving to felony, where I was the lead felony division attorney for 4.5 years in division 20.  After that, I was the Misdemeanor Division Chief for a little over a year and a half, supervising the misdemeanor attorneys.  I was then promoted to major crimes representing clients charged with first and second degree murder, and that is the position I was in at the time I left in July, 2014.

I went into private practice for 2 years first in a firm with two partners, and when that firm had to dissolved, I formed my own solo firm to finish representation of my client's cases.  I have now been hired back to the Public Defender's Office as of August, 2016, where I will be representing clients who cannot afford to hire an attorney.  As an Assistant Public Defender, I am not available for hire; all of my clients are appointed to me.
