About Me

In addition to practicing law I have been involved in teaching law on a part-time,  adjunct basis.  I taught Business Law for accountants at Canisius College from 1983 to 1988. I also taught a course in Business Ethics in the MBA program. In 2008 I participated in a program through the Center for International Legal Studies in Salzburg, Austria, to teach law at an eastern European law school. I accepted an apppointment and taught an introductory course in American Business Law in Poland at Szczecin University during April, 2008.

I have also participated in entrepreneur workshops sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration ("SBA") and  Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) in Western New York since 1981.  Through this program I have given more than 250 presentations during the last 27 years on legal issues affecting start-ups.
