About Me

I am a partner at LaMonica Herbst & Maniscalco, LLP (the “Firm”).   I joined the Firm as an associate in March 2004 and was made partner in March 2007.


During law school graduated law school, I clerked at the Massachusetts Superior Court, assisted in the denaturalization and deportation of Nazi war criminals residing in the United States while serving at the Department of Justice Office of Special Investigations, litigated numerous criminal cases as a public defender in New Mexico, and worked on a variety of contract, copyright, trademark, and communications issues at National Public Radio's Office of the General Counsel.


After graduation from law school, I worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Nassau County for nearly four years, prosecuting a variety of petty and felony crimes.  Prior to joining the Firm, I worked at the Law Offices of David J. Sutton, P.C., as an associate, where my primary areas of practice were general and commercial litigation.


I am admitted to practice before the courts of the State of New York, the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.
