About me

I grew up in New England and I love our community.  I became a lawyer 28 years ago to help people and since then I am honored to have businesses, families and municipalities choose me to represent them in negotiations, ligitation and mediation, in addition to being a trusted counselor and friend.  My job is different every day and I love it.
