Thank you,  for another great year, Ybor City  

Another great year for the Firm and the practice of law in historic Ybor City!   

The Firm's support of students at Lockhart Elementary Magnet School and Lee Elementary was a special highlight and will continue in 2023.  We provided much needed school supplies to the children as well as updating certain equipment in the computer labs and library areas.  I stand ready to support the brilliant teachers, devoted staff and curious, well-mannered students at Lockhart and Lee and also am adding Potter Elementary to my list.  

Legal Pro Bono work last year and this year included complex civil matters, administrative matters, felony, misdemeanor, post-conviction, appellate, criminal traffic, civil traffic, administrative, landlord-tenant, and family law matters (injunctions).    We are better when the playing field is level without regard to ability to pay.

The Firm encourages and supports pro bono and has several pro bono matters underway to continue into 2024.   My sincere good wishes to all lawyers to be kind and generous with your time.  Kindness matters.
