About Me

I am an attorney practicing for nearly 27 years.  I am a Criminal Defense Attorney familiar with all aspects of New York's Penal and Criminal Procedure Laws.  I am also familiar with the Family Law, Real Estate Transactions, Contract Law and Civil Defense.  I am also a "people person"; I believe that to be an excellent attorney that you have to connect with your clients and families on a personal level.  You need to trust and be trusted because if you don't trust your lawyer then all is lost.
