About The Firm

After practicing law in the public sector in Michigan for a number of years, I moved to Naples, Florida, in 1990 as a partner in the Law Offices of Craig, Ryan, Mast & King, where I focused on insurance defense and other types of civil cases. In early 1995, I opened my own law practice in Naples, Florida, to represent individuals and small business owners in southwest Florida.

Since then, I have successfully represented adults and children who have been injured in car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog attacks, slip-and-fall accidents and gunshot cases. I am experienced in helping clients who have suffered all types of injury, included herniated disks, spinal injury, closed head trauma and broken bones in accidents. I also represent families who have lost loved ones in cases of wrongful death.

Other Practice Areas

Many people need assistance in more than one area of law, so I provide legal services in the areas of family law and probate and estate administration. To serve the needs of small business owners in southwest Florida, I provide legal services in the areas of commercial and residential leasing.

To my clients, I bring more than 25 years of legal experience in a broad range of legal areas:

  • I was an Assistant Corporation Counsel with the City of Detroit Law Department, where I handled thousands of civil cases and appeals.
  • As a partner with Craig, Ryan, Mast & King, I represented major insurance carriers in personal injury claims, giving me an understanding how the other side thinks in accident cases.
  • I was certified as a Circuit Civil Mediator by the University of South Florida. Even though I do not currently practice as a mediator, my certification training helps me to negotiate effectively on behalf of my clients.

My law office is located on 5th Avenue North in downtown Naples, approximately 13 blocks from the beach.
