As a corporate transactions attorney, I am often in a position, whether in an acquisition setting, a capital raise, or a situation between two partners, where it’s my job to create mutually beneficial solutions. Through my experience handling mergers & acquisitions, early-stage venture capital, and corporate securities law, I’ve learned to not only identify problems, but I find creative ways to resolve issues that ensure all parties achieve favorable results.

The value I deliver to my clients stems from nearly 40 years of working directly with business owners to accomplish their goals. I view each transaction from my client’s perspective so I am able to find a solution in a cost-effective and timely manner while anticipating his or her needs. I pride myself on listening to and spending time with, my clients. Rather than focusing only on the legal issues, I examine the business, personal and legal factors enabling me to propose and achieve reasonable resolutions for all parties so neither side feels like they’ve lost.

No matter the situation or circumstance, my clients know that I am here to anticipate their needs, listen to their goals, and work together to get all parties to “yes.”

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

DEATH, PROBATE AND DUE PROCESS: Do the Notice Requirements Under the Florida Probate Code and Rules Pass Constitutional Muster
In Florida, a procedure exists allowing the person seeking to administer the estate of a decedent (the “petitioner”) to resolve certain issues before the issuance of letters of administration. Fla. Stat. §733.2123; 7 Fla. Pl. & Pr. Forms §50:55 (2015). One of those issues is whether the last will and testament offered for probate is valid.
Tortious Interference with an Expectation of an Inheritance A Survey Since Galbreath
The tort of intentional interference with an expectation of an inheritance (IIEI) is one way of remedying wrongdoing by unscrupulous persons who prey upon vulnerable, sick and weak people with wealth. The tort is recognized to advance a public policy for the protection of the testator’s interest in freely disposing of his or her property. In contrast to a garden-variety will contest based on undue influence, where the contestant must establish that the free will of the testator was overborne, a tortious interference claim does not require such a proof. Rather, the focus is on the defendant’s intention: whether the defendant intended to interfere with an inheritance and acted on that intention.
