About Me

I am Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney, and have been involved with the field of criminal law throughout my entire career. There are very few lawyers with this certification - less than .0033% of the lawyers in NJ - are Certified Criminal Trial Attorneys. The certification process required that I prove my trial experience by having represented a significant number of client’s at trial through a verdict; tested my trial skills; and, tested my knowledge of the law, court rules and trial procedure. As a Criminal Trial Attorney, I focus my defense efforts on clients charged with violating the criminal law of the State of New Jersey; and, of the Criminal Code of the United States.
