I am an experienced Broward County criminal defense attorney, licensed to practice law in New York and New Jersey since 1986, and in Florida since 1988. I am Federally admitted in Florida (Southern District of FL, Middle District of FL), New York (EDNY, SDNY) and in New Jersey; and I am admitted to practice in United States Tax Court.
