About me

I have been practicing law since June 2, 1988, and have been a trained mediator and a trained collaborative divorce attorney since 2005.  I have been practicing in Avon, Connecticut since November, 2004, and have represented clients in front of Probate Courts, Superior Courts, the Connecticut Appellate Court and the Connecticut Supreme Court (twice, with 5-0 decisions in favor of my clients in both matters), as well as with the Connecticut Medical Board and the Department of Motor Vehicles.  I clerked for the Superior Court for 3 and 1/2 years from 1989 to 1992, and have been in private practice ever since.  I serve as a Special Master in both Middletown and Hartford family Court, conducting pre-trials and recommending how to resolve divorces, and I have served both the Hartford and New Britain Courts as an Arbitrator and Attorney Fact-Finder since 2005.  I understand how judges think and rule, and I can help the client strategize a plan to acheive thier goals.  Currently, I serve as the Acting Chair for the Ethics Board for the Town of Simsbury and am the Vice-Chair of the Simsbury Democratic Town Committee.  I know how to listen, and I do my best to deliver quality representation for a good value.
