I am a first generation Haitian-American and a Treasure Coast native. Always having loved Orlando and its theme parks, I decided to attend college and law school in Orlando, Florida, where I earned my B.S. in legal studies from the University of Central Florida (go Knights!) and eventually would earn my J.D. from Barry University School of Law. While at Barry Law, I had the honor of serving on the editorial board of its Law Review Journal as a Research and Technical Editor and even had my own work chosen for publication. From a young age I learned my family’s history with the law in Haiti which drew me to my interest in the law. My passion for the law and the pursuit of more knowledge has even fueled me to enroll in Boston University School of Law’s LL.M. in Taxation program, where my studies are concentrated on estate planning.

Why I Love What I Do

            I have always known that my passion in life was to help people and I have always had an affinity for reading and writing. Combining my skills with my love of the law, I saw that working exclusively with estate planning and probate can best serve the community. I’ve always understood that having a loved one pass away is a difficult experience and that stress can be compounded when families fight over an inheritance, making the process overwhelming for all involved. I find it fulfilling to know that I can help families avoid the stress of not knowing where an inheritance should go and to minimize the stress associated with a loved one’s passing the best way I know how.
