I graduated from Emory University school of law, a nationally recognized institution, ranked 20 out of 184 accredited law schools. In 1977, I became an associate in a law firm, located in Bridgeport and began my 32 year career handling personal injury cases for both Plaintiffs and Defendants. Over the years I have handled thousands of personal injury matters and amassed over 100 jury verdicts.
In 1979 I was appointed to the post of Assistant Town Attorney for the Town of Stratford, being the youngest person to obtain this position. In the mid-80s I was honored with the position of Town Attorney fot Stratford. I personally handled most of the litigation for the Town, trying numerous cases to conclusion.
In 1983 I established my own firm with an emphasis on personal injury litigation. During that time I represented injured persons and also represented individuals on behalf of over 25 insurance carriers. In 1985 I obtained the largest verdict in the state against a chiropractor for malpractice. I have successfully argued cases before the Connecticut Supreme Court, concerning under-insured motorist coverage, medical malpractice and police conduct matters.
In 1999, i restricted my practice to solely handling cases for injured persons, preferring to forgo taking on cases on behalf on insurance companies.
