He and his partner specialize in the legal advice and representation of gays and lesbians, and also specialize in the large number of legal issues raised by HIV, including estate and health care planning, disability planning, insurance issues, viatical settlements, and the law of discrimination. He has served as a volunteer for ten years with the Health Crisis Network, a community-based comprehensive AIDS services organization in Dade County, Florida, and currently sits on the organization's board of directors.

A frequent lecturer, he has spoken on behalf of the AmFar, the National Gay and Lesbian Lawyers Association, and numerous other charitable, educational, and other organizations on the subjects of gay rights and HIV issues, and also held workshops on those subjects. He has also written several columns dealing with the legal concerns of gays and lesbians, published a book on that subject, Gay Law 101: What Florida's Gays and Lesbians Need to Know About the Legal System, and has written for The Florida Bar on the subject of planning for disability.
