About Me


I am a partner at Lesnevich, Marzano-Lesnevich & Trigg, LLC where I practice personal injury law.


I have two assistants, Diana Mina (from Colombia!) and Kat Hernandez (from New Jersey!), who are always available if you cannot reach me at the office,



I was legally trained in Ireland and the USA, with clients from both countries. I have an extensive referral base throughout the world. My firm pays referral fees for personal injury cases referred to me and my firm.


Outside of work, I spend time with my wife, Francesca, our daughter, Keira, and our son, Connor. We live on Bergen County, cycle together, swim together, eat together, and watch Disney Junior together!
