About Me

I am a Staten Island personal injury attorney with over 10 years experience. I have published 2 consumer books, The New York Accident Book and The Lawyer's Guide to Purchasing Car Insurance, and frequently blog about issues that affect Staten Island reidents on the Staten Island Injury Law Blog.  


In my peronal life, I am the father of two young children, Francis and Giuliana. I enjoy skiing with my family at Jiminy Peak in the Berkshires and have become an advocate of helmest for all skiers.


In the summer months, I am a PADI-certified Dive Master with extensive experience in scuba diving to ship wrecks in the northeast United States. I am an avid fisherman, having caught my largest Striped Bass last year, weighing 33 pounds. I also enjoy playing softball, having started our own team with players from the office and their friends.

    I have not worked against Frank and I am glad of it. Frank is one sharp lawyer. I vew Frank as the guy that wrote the book on personal injury for New York. He is an expert on auto accident law and insurance law. If someone who is injured on Staten Island or in New York City needs a lawyer, Frank is THE MAN. He has a wealth of knowlege which he is happy to share. His website contains wealth of information.
