About Me

I am a solo practitioner with a general practice in Rockland County.

My areas of practice include Criminal Defense, Traffic Tickets, Debt Collection, Civil Litigation, Real Estate, Landlord Tenant matters and more.

I started my legal career as a prosecutor at the Rockland County District Attorney's Office.  As a Senior Assistant District Attorney, I gained experience handling a wide array of criminal matters, from petty offenses to serious felonies.  I also supervised drug cases and was the ADA assigned to the Rockland County Narcotics Task Force.

I left the RCDA to become a Special Agent with the FBI, where I was awarded the Fidelity Bravery Integrity award.  I investigated White Collar Crime in the New York City office.


In 1999, I entered private practice as a solo practitioner.  I have over 11 years of experience handling many different areas of law.

I can bring Experience, Integrity and Advocacy to your case.
