About Me

After practicing law at a small litigation firm for almost two years in Hartford Connecticut, I moved my practice to Boston in 1993. In 2004, McLeod Law Offices, PC was founded. In addition to the Connecticut and Massachusetts state courts, I've litigated cases in the United States District Courts for the Districts of Massachusetts and Connecticut, the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, as well as the United States Bankruptcy Court in Massachusetts. I have argued before the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and am admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.
