He concentrates his practice in estate planning, estate and trust administration, commercial transactions and business entity formations. He frequently speaks and writes on estate planning and business matters for financial planners, accountants, attorneys, and the general public.

He also has been recognized throughout his career by The Best of the U.S. LLC, Florida Monthly and has been included in Best Lawyers in America since 2006.
