About me

I have been practicing law since 1981.  While I do represent clients at the trial court level from time to time, I have chosen to limit my practice so that currently, and for the past approximately 15 years, I represent clients almost exclusively in their appeals to New York State appellate courts.  Being familiar with appellate practice, primarily in the Third and Fourth Departments, I represent clients in civil (including matrimonial/divorce matters), family court and criminal appeals.
