Welcome to my Avvo profile. I've been licensed to practice law in New Jersey for nearly 25 years, and in Florida for about 16 years. I was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, and am a 1987 graduate of the Temple University Beasley School of Law in Philadelphia. Before that, I earned a BA in psychology and an MBA in economics/finance, both from Temple University. Following law school, I was a New Jersey State Criminal Prosecutor (Financial Crimes Unit) and Florida Assistant Attorney General (Tampa Economic Crime Unit). Even though my office is in Pinellas County, Florida, I am licensed to practice law in all of the state and Federal courts in both Florida and New Jersey. I am particularly interested in filing Federal lawsuits relating to consumer law violations throughout Florida and New Jersey. Pursuant to both state and Federal consumer statutes, you will typically only pay my fees if I win your consumer case. Furthermore, my initial consultations are free, so call me and tell me about your legal problem. If I can't help you, I may be able to refer you to someone who can. Take care!
