The majority of my my practice centers around legal issues between students and schools. This issue is my passion. Clients range from pre-Kindergarten through graduate schools. I also maintain a significant estate planning practice, including estate planning for families with special needs children. In addition to my J.D., I also have a Master's Degree in Education and a teaching certification. I am a member of the bar in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Florida.
I attended Suffolk Law School as an evening student, working full-time to support my family. While at Suffolk, I earned a spot on the Law Review, where I focused my research and writing on the issue of the MCAS graduation requirement as it relates to children with special needs. I graduated from Suffolk cum laude.
In my personal life, I serve as Vice President and on the Board of Directors of Temple Beth Israel in Waltham. I also serve on the Board of Directors of two other organizations: the Waltham Community Foundation, a charitable organization that provides financial assistance to charities that benefit the people of Waltham, as well as GWARC, which assists people with intellectual challenges.
I am married, and have one daughter. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, playing the piano, playing golf, and watching the Red Sox.
