I am a lawyer by trade and practice transactional law in three core areas, business and commercial relations, real estate, and estate planning. I recently started my own law practice in St Petersburg, FL, after having spent several years in commercial litigation at a boutique firm in Naples, FL. While in litigation practice I developed considerable experience litigating contracts, real estate disputes, and landlord tenant matters. Before long, however, most of the litigation I handled was connected by a similar theme and I began to recognize the pattern. Most, if not all, of the disputes I encountered was due to a lack of proper planning from the outset. It became increasingly difficult to see clients go through financial ruin and emotional strife when just a little upfront diligence could have prevented the conflict. After coming to this realization I decided to focus my efforts and make it my mission to help people plan and execute for success in their business dealings. After seeing the success firsthand and the freedom that comes with successful business and real estate ventures, I have become an avid fan and student of real estate investing. My goal here is to learn everything I can about real estate investing principles, grow my network of professionals in which we all help each other in our investment goals, and to keep investing in real estate as a means to ultimate freedom.
