About Me



We’re thrilled to be featured in Forbes magazine! Take a look at our profile:



Whether you have come under investigation or actually been charged with a crime, you need to act rapidly to protect yourself, your family, your business and your assets. Having strong, aggressive and creative defense counsel involved at the earliest moment of your case significantly shifts the odds in your favor.


I live in Manhattan and have raised two wonderful children here. I am an avid outdoorsman. In my spare time I backpack, mountain climb, ski and sea kayak.
