I believe I bring a unique background to the mediation process. From 1976 when I began practicing as a civil trial lawyer, until 2005, I was a defense trial attorney trying cases on behalf of Defendants and their insurance companies.  In 2005, I began trying cases on behalf of Plaintiffs.  I have 40 years of trial experience both as a Defense attorney and as a Plaintiff's attorney.  I believe this allows me the advantage of fully appreciating the positions and needs of Plaintiffs, Defendants and their insurance companies during the mediation process.    


Biography: I am a native Floridian, born in Coral Gables, Florida. I graduated from the University of Georgia and I served in the United States Marine Corps.  I attended and graduated from the University of Florida Law School (now the Levin College of Law).  I served as an officer of the Dade County Defense Bar Association, including serving as its' President in 1991.  I was a Senior Partner with the Insurance Defense law Firm of Wicker, Smith and was the lead counsel in numerous jury trials primarily in the areas of medical malpractice, motor vehicle liability, premises liability, product liability, and nursing home litigation. I have tried to jury verdict cases in the Federal Courts and in the State Circuit Courts across the state of Florida, including trials in Dade County, Broward County, Monroe County, Charlotte County, Sarasota County, Hillsborough County, Pasco County, Pinellas County and Polk County.  I was admitted to Florida Bar 1976 and I am still an active member of the Florida Bar and the U. S. Federal District Courts for the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida
