Every client problem is different and my multi-disciplinary expertise (three separate board certifications in both transactional and litigation law, thirty years’ experience as arbitrator, and Florida Supreme Court approved mediator certification) allows me to bring experience and industry knowledge to bear on solving the problem. My unique experience allows me to tailor solutions to fit the client’s needs instead of offering just one approach to solve the problem.
