About Me


I have been practicing almost exclusively in criminal defense for the past four years. Prior to that I was a prosecutor on Cape Cod and in Boston.


Over the past four years, I have represented clients in all types of crimes, including Robbery, Drug Trafficking, Drug Possession and Distribution, Breaking and Entering, White Collar crimes, Assault and Battery, Domestic Assault and Battery, and Operating under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs.


I have represented clients in many different courts across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, including most district, juvenile, and superior courts. I also specialize in juvenile defense. I have also previously represented clients in Restraining Order Hearings, Firearm Licensing Issues, and at the Registry of Motor Vehicles.


I have two offices for the convenience of my clients. My main office is in Boston at the Charlestown Navy Yard. I also have an office on Cape Cod located at 3212 Main Street Barnstable, Ma 02660.


If you need any help in your defense, I am very experience on both sides of the law and very driven to satisfy the needs of my clients.
