About Me

Visit my website at for more information. 


I have been a licensed lawyer in the State of Connecticut since 2002.  I practice primarily in the areas of Bankruptcy, Criminal and Divorce Law.  


I have worked hard to build a reputation as a lawyer that delivers excellent results for his clients at an affordable rate.  My goal is to make sure that my clients are informed at every step of the way so that they understand their options completely.  I am proud of the fact that most of my cases come as referrals from former clients and their family members as well as from fellow attorneys.  


I offer free initial consultations along with fixed flat fees and payment plans.  I believe that the fixed flat fee service model takes the worry out of the process of dealing with a lawyer and increases the needed communication with clients.  Clients are often nervous about the cost of legal services and hourly rates.  I will explain how my fixed flat fee service works when we meet to discuss your case. 


I look forward to hearing from you.  Please call today to schedule an appointment at 203-527-7644 a friendly staff member is waiting to take your call.
