About Me

    I've been practicng law in the New York metropolitan area for 20+ years.  I help people who have been injured in any type of accident, as well as those who have been arrested.  When I'm not wearing my lawyer hat, I'm usually doing something physical since I'm a fitness nut.  I actually teach a high-end cardio kickboxing class at Bally Total Fitness two days each week.
