After graduating from Boone High School, I attended Davidson College in North Carolina, then transferring to and graduating from Stetson University. After three years of study at the University of Florida School Of Law, I received my law degree (Juris Doctor).
I successfully completed the Florida Bar Exam a few months later and began my legal career as an officer in the legal branch of the United States Army – the JAG Corps. I served on active duty over nine years in various assignments of increasing responsibility, including Chief Lawyer for the Presidio of San Francisco, and overseas in Germany. Upon my release from active duty, I served in the U. S. Army Reserves for twenty years, including many tours at various Army posts, and overseas in Ecuador and Germany, retiring as a Colonel.
Upon release from active duty, I worked for the Orange County Legal Aid Society until admission to the University Of Miami School of Law Masters Program in the area of Estate Planning. Upon my graduation with the Master’s Degree (LL.M, Estate Planning), I returned to Orlando, since when I have maintained a private law practice.
