Thirty Years

 Thirty years ago today I was sworn in as a member of the Florida Bar by Judge Becky Titus. It has been a great career, mostly due to the people I have worked with and the friends I have made. One person who has been with me every step of the way, is Regina Tebrugge, who started as my co-counsel, became my friend, and for these past many years has been my wife. I would also like to thank my first boss, Elliott Metcalfe who was a great friend and employer for 23 of those years. I also must acknowledge my friend and landlord, Mark Lipinski, for all of his support, particularly these last seven years.
The past thirty years have prepared me to take the next step. I am in the process of closing Tebrugge Legal so that I can work full time protecting our constitutional rights and reforming Florida's criminal justice system. I will be ready to provide more information in early July.
