About me

I run a general practice firm located in Hartford, Connecticut, focusing in criminal defense and personal injury.  The firm excels in guiding individuals through Connecticut's complex legal system – charging a very reasonable fee for doing so and often working out flexible payment arrangements to ensure those needing assistance can afford it.
