I joined Bay Area Legal Services in 1991 as a newly-admitted attorney to The Florida Bar because I wanted to do something meaningful with my life. The firm has given me the chance to fulfill all my dreams for a rewarding, ever-challenging, and meaningful career while serving my clients and community.
