About Me

I maintain a general practice with emphasis in municipal law and real estate. I serve as City Solicitor for the City of Attleboro and Town Counsel for the Town of Mansfield. In my capacity as general counsel to these municipalities, I am often involved in complex land use and construction litigation. I also provide advice and representation to public officials on a very wide range of legal matters including, municipal finance, eminent domain, licensing, contracts, procurement, municipal utilities, ethics and zoning. For private clients I handle complex real estate transactions, land use permitting, leading and litigation involving interests in real estate.
