I have been practicing in MA since 1997 and before that in NY since 1991. In 2006, I decided to go solo and I love it! I only take cases if I truly have the time to devote to them. I understand that a client is spending good money for an attorney and expects results. To this end, I provide honest and capable advice even if iI means telling a clent that he or she will be spend a lot of money and may not get any results! If I feel your case is financially feasible and capable of producing some result, then we can talk about engaging my services. Perhpas my empathetic point of view stems from my own experience as a client.
I can assure you that I will work hard for you. We will be a team and work toward your result at every step of the way.
When not working hard, I am playing hard skiing up Mt. Greylock, biking to Petersburgh NY, running a 10K to Stephentown NY or kayaking the "Bowl". I also enjoy music and long walks with my poodle Bambino. He is a bit of a celebrity even though adopted from Capital District Humane Society. Google Conwell Delaware to learn more.
