What legal training do I have? To start out, I did graduate from Dunedin High School. (We won’t tell you how long ago that was.) I then went on to St. Petersburg Junior College for one year; It’s now St. Pete College. Then I went on to Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, and graduated with a B.S. in Accounting. From there, I went to Mercer University to the Walter F. George School of Law and graduated with my JD degree (that stands for Juris Doctorate). So don’t call me “Doctor”, just call me “Lawyer”. And from there, I started practicing law in New Port Richey, Florida on Main Street with James J. Altman; He was a great mentor. I stayed with Jim Altman for about six years before I opened up my own law firm across the street. I can’t say enough good things about him.
From there, I stayed across the street for a while and then I took on a partner by the name of Stanley R. Mills who is now Circuit Court Judge. He got on the bench in 1989. I then moved to my present location at 5332 Main Street in New Port Richey. And that covers about 40 years of practicing law, so I guess a lot of my experience is just being here. As Woody Allen would say, 80 percent of success is just showing up every day! So I have been showing up every day for 40 years. I also am a Board Certified Real Estate Attorney (and have been for I don’t know how many years). So, that is the extent of my legal education and it takes a lot of experience, having gone through the process, to come up with a good answer. So if you need some good answers, give me a call at (727) 847-2288.
