About Me

I recently left the employment of the County Attorney in Schenectady County and returned to private practice.  I opened my office on Clinton Street, sharing space with two other attorneys that I respect and admire.  I operate a general practice with a focus on Family Court matters, including abuse and neglect, support, and Fair Hearings on indicated hotline reports.

The remainder of my practice is focused on Adoption, Matrimonials, Criminal matters, including traffic violations, Landlord Tenant and Appeals.  As you can see from the experience section I have done a number of appeals before the Appellate Division Third Department.  I also have written appeals for other attorneys.
