WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU
We are currently in the midst of a transformation that will reshape the very foundation of the way we experience life. Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the human experience, breaking misconceptions of separateness, removing borders and spreading wealth and power to the people. I am a firm believer in this movement and I have therefore devoted my time, energy and entire legal practice to intimately understanding every facet of the legal challenges threatening the blockchain revolution. It is a revolution after all.
I walked away from a prominent career as a corporate and real estate transactions and litigation lawyer for a prestigious national law firm in the United States. I served some of the largest corporations in the world. Now I am using my extensive legal knowledge and experience to assist blockchain entrepreneurs and startups - providing them the same exceptional legal counsel I provided large corporations.
If you need assistance with any blockchain related legal matters, I can offer you thoughtful legal representation with authentic and dedicated support towards achieving your ultimate goal. Regardless of the service you require you can rest assured that I will personally be handling the matter on your behalf.
My goal here is to provide you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have an experienced and competent individual handling your legal needs with the same level of care and concern that you yourself would give to achieve your desired outcome. Your time should not be spent researching how to perform a legal task or acquiring the knowledge that I possess, it should be spent managing and growing your organization.
I believe in you, and we believe in blockchain. As an avid supporter of the blockchain revolution I accept Bitcoin and Ethereum, and in certain situations Altcoins and Tokens, in exchange for my services. I do not accept any fiat currencies as payment for services - this is a reflection of my belief in the value and expansive future of blockchain technology and what it represents for all those that choose to participate.
Lets change the world together.

A Little More About Me
I grew up in southern New Jersey, exploring the woods, playing soccer and surfing. I moved to Florida when I was eighteen to attend college. After attending the University of North Florida, where I graduated in the top 1% in the United States with a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance and real estate, I took six months and traveled by myself throughout Asia. I then attended Florida Coastal School of Law where I was a Dean’s Scholar and obtained my Juris Doctor degree.
While in law school I worked with Barker & Barker, P.A., a boutique business and real estate law firm. After law school I took an associate attorney position at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP. I have personally managed and performed legal work on an extensive portfolio of matters on behalf of some of the largest companies in the world, including but not limited to financial institutions, mortgage servicers, asset management companies, venture capitalist, real estate investors, tech companies, and insurance companies.
Today I am based between Winter Park, Florida and Haleiwa, Hawaii. I am an avid world traveler, spending a significant amount of time in Southeast Asia and along the Mediterranean. I started a not for profit (www.lovelephant.com) focused on rehoming Asian elephants and I am in investor in a number of startups. I practice yoga and meditation on a daily basis. I study the blockchain industry and the legal issues related thereto on a daily basis. I believe in abundance; therefore my intention is to help others, in doing that my needs and desires will always be met. I am ready to help you.
