Review David Barra

About Me

When I'm not practicing law, I am active in our Rotary club as the Scholarship Committee chair.  I also referee soccer at the high school and college level and am a member of the New England Intercollegiate Soccer Officials Association executive committee.  I have SCUBA certification and enjoy diving as often as I can.
