About me

Living and working in my home town of Waltham, Massachusetts has been the most fullfilling experience for me. From Waltham High School, to UMASS-Amherst, to Suffolk Law School, I have had the best foundation to begin my legal career. I am most proud of my wife Janis, and my two awesome kids, Cara and Clint, who keep me grounded. In my law practice, I promise to provide honest and affordable legal services in bankruptcy, divorce, and estate planning. Give me a call, the first one is free!
