Union College, Schenectady, NY. – Bachelor of Arts, Cum Laude, 1977
University of Miami, Miami, Florida – Juris Doctor, 1980
Admitted to Florida Bar in 1980
I founded my own law firm in 1984 after 4 years in private practice at two South Florida law firms. The focus of my work is condominium and homeowner association law. We represent condominium associations, condominium developers, unit owners, homeowner associations and homeowners in all aspects of condominium and homeowner association law.
We also represent the interests of businesses and individuals in various aspects of business and real estate law.
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS TO DATE –
In 1984, I successfully argued in The Florida Supreme Court on behalf of the Appellant/Parent in Nodar vs. Galbreath, a slander action filed by a public high school teacher against her student’s parent for critical comments he made about the teacher at a public meeting of the Broward County School Board. The Supreme Court’s lengthy opinion reversed the unanimous decision of the Fourth District Court of Appeal and has had significant implications for “first amendment” cases since then.
