Biography

Before coming to Bogin, Munns & Munns, I practiced law for fourteen years in two different medium sized Orlando firms, and then a very large national firm for eight years.  I bring, and defend, both small and large claims on behalf of individuals, partnerships, associations and corporations. I spent several years successfully representing a large Orlando apartment complex in a federal lawsuit against a national termite protection company from Georgia, learning a great deal about pre-construction treatment, and proving their failure to treat using concrete core samples at trial.

I was a stock broker for seven years before going to law school. I learned a great deal about how to invest wisely, and then decided to expand my skill set by litigating cases on behalf of customers against some of the biggest investment companies.  We usually brought these claims in arbitration, and achieved a number of fast, positive results for our clients.

I am a very good listener, I have excellent judgment, and I am not afraid of conflict. Our adversary system produces some of the best results in the world. I love winning. I played 7 years of WAIT league competitive tennis. I have run the New York Marathon.

As an undergrad and a graduate student in Canberra, Australia, I became very interested in the economic history of women’s work.   For my thesis at the Australia National University, I examined thousands of original documents from 1903-1913 which is when the industrial revolution finally made it to Australia.  In an effort to convince women to bear children and not work for wages, the Australian government commissioned a hokum report that claimed factory sewing machines would cause a woman to suffer sudden and spontaneous organ failure. I find things like that fascinating.
