About Me

After working for large corporations (Prudential Insurance, a subsidiary of ITT, and mega-lawfirm Ropes & Gray) for about ten years as an accountant, auditor, programmer and systems analyst, I wanted to work for individuals in a field where I could make a difference for the better. 


I started with primarily a tax practice, but when April 15, 1985 came and went I developed a very general practice including criminal defense, personal injuries, consumer protection, landlord tenant and, through the untimely death of my partner, Phillip Henkoff in 1991, Workers Compensation.
