About me

I am a former federal judicial law clerk practicing criminal defense and civil litigation as a solo practitioner in the Buffalo and Western New York area.  My practice is based on the idea that individuals and small businesses look to solo practitioner attorneys and small law firms to handle particular legal issues because of the cost advantages and personal service they provide over the large law firms.  


In accordance with this philosophy, I try to emphasize the attorney-client relationship by remaining committed to the principles believed to ensure client satisfaction: dedication to client matters, aggressive advocacy and a willingness to thoroughly understand client needs.
