I am a criminal law prosecutor with the State Division of Criminal Justice currently assigned to the New Haven Judicial District, G.A. 23. I have been with the division for almost ten years.
I came to the law in my middle years after a twenty-year career with the Guilford, Connecticut, police department where I retired at the rank of lieutenant.
I earned my law degree from the Quinnipiac University Law School, graduating in 2003. While in law school I served as the executive managing editor of the Law Review. I also served as a student representative on the Dean search committee. During law school I interned with the Bridgeport Law firm Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder.
Following law school I began my legal career with the Faxon Law Group, a high end personal injury - medical malpractice firm, where I was an associate attorney. I left to join the state's attorney's office in New Haven where I am an assistant state's attorney, a move that returned me to criminal law and my roots.
Licensed since 2003
