About Me

I've been in practice for over 30 years. For several years, I was a partner in a small firm, but for most of that time, I've practiced on my own.

I am currently accepting clients in all areas of family law and in real estate and business matters, Wills & probate cases, business and incorporations, and most types of civil litigation.

I've also performed stand up comedy for the last couple of years and have appeared as an opening act for Bob Marley at the Portland Comedy Connection. I also do book reviews and software reviews for the Maine Lawyers Weekly, the Maine Bar Journal, and other publications.

I'm the Past President (1984-1985) of the Portland Jaycees and am a member and Past President (1996-1997) of the Portland Rotary Club.
