About me

I specialize in personal injury claims, workers' compensation claims and criminal defense.  I have handled and tried a wide range of state and federal civil and criminal cases in courts all over Massachusetts, from Boston to Worcester.  I have also tried numerous Federal Civil Rights lawsuits in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

I grew up in Southern Worcester County. Following high school I attended Clemson University. After graduating from Clemson I attended and obtained my juris doctorate from New England School of Law in Boston.   I was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 2005 and am licensed to practice in all courts within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I am also a member of the Federal Bar licensed to practice in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
