About me

I like my job!  I limit my practice to Criminal Defense in the Superior court and prefer cases in Essex County where I have been practicing law for the past 10 years.  If you are interested in an attorney who can spot the legal issues in a case, write the motions and briefs to explore those issues, has great trial presence, is known in a positive light by the Judges, Prosecutors and fellow Defense Attorneys,  then call me if you have a criminal charge or charges.  Advice:  IF you are arrested DO NOT TALK!  Just keep repeating I want a lawyer and then wait until you have one.
