About Me

I grew up in the Norwichtown area of Norwich, attended Norwich public schools and graduated from the Norwich Free Academy in 1984.  I returned to Norwich after law school and started my practice with the law firm of Brown Jacobson P.C. in 1993.  I joined the firm of Chinigo, Leone & Maruzo, LLP in 2001. I currently live in Mystic, although much of my family still lives in Norwich and I remains very active in Norwich civic organizations, including Three Rivers College Foundation (past president) and the Norwich Community Cinema Foundation.
