Prior to founding Stiles Law, P.A., I handled litigation and transactional matters for two medium sized Central Florida law firms. In addition to my law firm experience, I was Vice President and Corporate Counsel to a global software provider, where I managed all transactional work and outside counsel on litigation and intellectual property matters.
I provide strategic legal advice to companies and individuals with regard to complex litigation and arbitration proceedings, technology agreements (including SaaS and mobile app end user agreements), privacy law, government regulations, drafting and reviewing complex contracts, franchises, real estate, non-profits, labor and employment issues, and trademark and intellectual property matters. I am also an expert in the emerging area of Drone/UAV/UAS law having successfully filed Section 333 FAA Petitions for Exemptions and I have a full understanding of FAA regulations including Part 107 and related waivers.
With more than 20 years of experience in management, my deep understanding of business provides me a unique insight into client issues as I tackle my client’s legal matters in a constantly changing marketplace. I utilize sound legal and business judgment and clearly communicate with my clients in order to develop long lasting relationships with them. Having owned a number of companies, I understand the unique challenges of business ownership. I also understand the need to evaluate risk versus reward in making business decisions and have the ability to combine common sense solutions and legal considerations when providing strategic advice.
My corporate experience includes working with a variety of major corporations, small businesses and start-up ventures. I worked in business development for industry leaders such as American Express, Expedia.com and Cendant, earning numerous awards including Presidents Club Awards for business productivity.
I grew up in Central Florida and have maintained strong ties to the local community. I attended Trinity Preparatory School and Winter Park High School. I graduated, with Honors, from Rollins College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Management, and a minor in Economics. I attended Florida A&M University College of Law where I earned my Juris Doctor and am a member in good standing of The Florida Bar.
