I have been practing law in Fairfield county since 2009. I began my career in the Bridgeport Public Defenders Office defending indigent clients. I opened my own office in Bridgeport in 2011 and expanded my offices to Danbury as well and in 2013 I was proud to become an associate of Ventura, Ribeiro and Smith. My practice area is priamrily workers compensation however I do also practice personal injury law and criminal defense.
Compassioante service is a core value that I try to instill in every case that I take. My goal is to make sure that ym client's rights are protected and respected and that my clients feel like they have someone who is fighting on their behalf. At the end of the day my goal is to help my clients get through what is most likely their most troubling times so that their injuries do not becoming life altering tragedies.
I also write a column for the Tribuna Newspaper, the only periodical printed in English, Spanish and Portuguese in New England. You can find my work there at www.tribunact.com where I write the columns for Reasonable Doubt and Know Your Rights.
If you have questions, concerns or looking for help, please contact me and if I cannot assit you I will help you find someone who will.
