About the Practice

I received a Bachelor of Arts (summa cum laude)  with majors in French and Mathematics from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. I obtained my law degree (Juris Doctor) from the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. In addition, I have a  Masters of Law in Taxation from the University of Florida.

After earning my LL.M. in Taxation, I worked at the law firm of Robert Feinschreiber and Associates, then joined the Chief Counsel’s Office of the Internal Revenue Service in Miami in 1984. My work consisted of all aspects of Tax Court litigation, preparation of defense letters and advisory opinions, and coordination of bankruptcy and refund litigation cases with the United States Attorney and the Department of Justice. In 1986, along with my duties at Chief Counsel’s Office, I became a Special Assistant United States Attorney in Miami handling all aspects of Bankruptcy Court litigation on behalf of the Internal Revenue Service. Since 1988, I have had my own practice largely focusing in the areas of bankruptcy and tax matters before the IRS. I also handle simple estate planning, probate and business matters.

Since January of 2005, I have been an adjunct professor of law at St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami Gardens, Florida. I teach Bankruptcy, Law Office Management and Bankruptcy Clinic. I taught Debtor-Creditor Rights from 2005 to 2015 and have taught Legal Accounting and the Bankruptcy Seminar.

From 2007 to 2010, I served on the Miami-Dade County Commission of Ethics and Public Trust.

I am a member of the Florida Bar, the American Bar, the South Florida Bankruptcy Bar Association (CARE Committee Member), the Coral Gables Bar Association, the South Miami-Kendall Bar Association and Florida Lawyers Network, Coral Gables Chapter (Membership Director). I am admitted to practice before the United States Tax Court, and the United States District Court for the Southern District and the Middle District of Florida.
