Whether you are facing criminal charges, or looking for help to correct mistakes made by a judge or previous attorney, the assistance of a proven, competent attorney is invaluable. Gary has been an attorney in the State of Florida since 1999, and has been practicing exclusively criminal law since 2000. During this time he has worked as both an Assistant State Attorney and an Assistant Public Defender. During his four years as an Assistant State Attorney, Gary worked closely with law enforcement, training them on the proper handling of forensic evidence, as well as assisting them in the preparation of search and arrest warrants.
His experience as a prosecutor assists him in anticipating the way the State puts a case together against a defendant, as well as identifying problems in the State’s cases. As an Assistant Public Defender Gary spent two years handling felony cases in circuit court. Gary’s responsibilities in circuit court included battling charges of sexual misconduct, drug trafficking, robberies and firearms cases. Practicing in the Public Defender’s office enabled Gary the opportunity to do what he went to law school for; to defend the rights of a private citizen against the power of the government, which all too often oversteps its rightful authority.
