About me



Member of the bar in the District of Columbia and the State of Maine, by examination in each case. Admitted to the bar of the Third Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.  Admitted pro hac vice (for a particular case) in NJ, OH, NV, MD and other jurisdictions.


Caution: I focus my practice on matters involving federal communications law, especially antenna zoning and permits. As a corollary, and to make them comply with federal law, I do a lot of work on antenna and tower leases.  I cannot help you with a divorce, will, criminal or consumer matter, and so forth, in Massachusetts.
