I am a Florida attorney, AV® rated, by Martindale-Hubbell and licensed in both State and Federal courts.  For 15 years, I have provided excellent legal representation to individuals in Central Florida.  I was born in Calatayud, Spain and speak both English and Spanish. 

"An AV Rating shows that a lawyer has reached the height of professional excellence. He or she has usually practiced law for many years, and is recognized for the highest levels of skill and integrity. "

I am proud to have the highest peer-reviewed rating (an AV Rating) from Martindale-Hubbell, the nation’s largest and oldest attorney rating service. I consider this as confirmation and an honor that other lawyers rank me at the highest level of professional excellence. 

 Legal Matters can create more stress on you than almost anything else. I understand this and work with compassion and personal attention for the best possible resolution to your situation.  I am always accessible to my clients and responsive to their needs.  In addition, I am also committed to providing an atmosphere that fosters trust and confidence.  

My role in any case is to provide excellentlegal representation to my clients. If cases cannot be resolved out of court, I will provide you with zealous advice and counsel at every stage of the litigation. I believe in a friendly, informal work atmosphere where we can better get to know and appreciate our clients and their individual needs.
