My story stems from the mean streets of NYC, growing up in the height of the crack era epidemic (1980’s). The only way out was to have a spectacular jump shot or hit home runs. Sadly, I didn’t have either of those talents, so the only way out was to hustle my way out with pure grit. I learned early on from “street pharmacists” to learn to manage your money well. So, I began a 20+ year banking career as a bank teller, a personal banker, stock broker then finally a VP Senior Project manager for one of the largest banks in the world. I later learned that in order to control your own destiny, you had to create a legacy you are most proud of. That led me to going to law school, elected president of the Mock Trial Board, graduating valedictory speaker, then launching my own law firm while raising two kids, working full time, being a baseball coach for 2 teams, and being on the board of directors for a youth athletic program. I am currently a partner of my own law firm, primarily practicing Personal Injury and Criminal Law in Tampa, FL. My hustle has never stopped! Then again, it reminds me of how I made it out the “hood” without a jump shot nor able to hit home runs! Stay tuned….
