About Me

I am a consumer rights attorney in Eastern Massachusetts. I primarily represent individuals with obtaining refunds for defective vehicles and defend debt collection lawsuits. I also serve as litigation counsel for many Boston area bankruptcy attorneys, suing creditors who violate the bankruptcy code.


 


Outside of my practice, I am a weekly volunteer with the Volunteer Lawyer's Project's Fair Debt Collection Clinic. I am also an adjunct faculty member of Suffolk University Law School, where I serve as an instructor for the school's highly decorated National Trial Team.
