About Me

I am a first generation Russian immigrant, a techie, a real estate investor, an entrepreneur and even a bit of a cook.  Having emigrated from the Soviet Union in 1989 and having lived in four different countries within that year, I grew up quickly.  In fact, I ran my first business in Italy, at the age of 8.  More recently, I've been a manager and regional trainer of an automotive chain, and then CEO of an IT company and a financial management company.  Then I became a lawyer...  My life experiences have certainly helped me understand different mentalities, cultures and points of view, making me an effective advocate for quite a few complex issues... My business experiences have allowed me to offer more than the overage commercial lawyer, as I can understand my client's position from a businessman's, rather than a lawyer's, point of view...
