About Me

Graduate of Hofstra University School of Law, class of 1998. Admitted in New York State, US Eastern and Southern District of NY and US Eastern and Southern Bankruptcy Courts of NY.

I am a member of the American Bar Association, New York State Bar Association, National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney's, Orange County Bar and Hudson Valley Bankruptcy Bar Associations. I am on the Disabilities Committee of the New York State Bar Association. In addition, I volunteer with Legal Services of the Hudson Valley as a pro bono attorney.

Keeping up with the changes in law demands much of my time.  In my free time, I enjoy following the NY Yankees and visiting local wineries.
