About me

I was born and raised in central New Jersey.  My father is an attorney and my mother  was a grade school teacher and guidance counselor for over 20 years.  I began studying engineering at the University of Massachussettes at Amherst but eventually switched to their Pre-law program.  After graduating, I attended law school at Hofstra University School of Law in New York.  I met my wife on the first day of orientation, even though it took us a year to realize we were meant to be together.  

After graduating, we began practicing in New York and New Jersey and in 2000, we moved to Tampa to be closer to my wife's family.  

We love the Tampa Bay area and are very involved in the community.  We have three boys who play all sports, we attend Buccaneers, Lightning and Rays games, and love to hit the gulf and beaches.  I enjoy coaching my boys in their sports, and am also on the board of directors for Temple Ahavat Shalom and Buddybaseball.  Buddybaseball is a baseball league in which children with special needs are accompanied on the field with similar aged volunteers to assist.  We also help out the local greyhound rescue groups and have adopted three dogs over the years.

I enjoy the practice of law and being able to help my clients, whether by settling or attending hearings (trials).  I would truly appreciate the opportunity to help you.
