About Me 

Originally, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. My father was a NYS corrections officer, and my mother a waitress. I now live in Ithaca, NY with my wife (of 25+ years), and four kids. I have degrees in Human Biology, and Doctorates in Law and Chiropractic. I love practicing criminal defense and injury law within New York State.

To learn more about DWI, criminal defense, traffic violations, and injury law in New York, I encourage you to explore my educational website, books, blog, articles, and You Tube Channel.

I am a co-author of the 2011 and 2013 West-Thomson Publications, Strategies for Defending DWI Cases in New York If you have legal questions, I urge you to pick up the phone and call me since I can answer your legal questions at 607-229-5184 or by e-mail at I welcome your call.

My practice focuses on DWI, criminal defense, traffic violations, and injury law (auto and truck) in the following counties Tompkins, Seneca, Schuyler, Tioga, Cortland, Steuben, and Broome. Over 85% of my cases are New York DWI cases. New York DWI laws are complicated, and techniques in defending DWI are constantly changing. That is why it is important to find a lawyer who stays on top of the current laws, trends, and what occurs in the Finger Lake Town Courts, Village Courts, City Courts, and County Courts everyday. I am that lawyer.

Under the Department of Transportation I am certified as a breath test technician, under the guidelines of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) I am Certified in the FSTS (Field Sobriety Tests), and I am a member of the NCDD (National College of DUI Defense).
