About me

I am a
professional problem solver. The focus of my practice is civil
litigation, including appellate work, in the areas of commercial
disputes, real estate and construction law, personal injury and family
law matters. I represent a wide range of businesses and
individuals and regularly assists my clients in resolving disputes
through negotiation, arbitration and mediation. I am a seasoned trial
attorney, and have tried cases in the state District, Superior, Probate
and Land Courts and in the Federal District Courts. A representative
sample of my recent trial work follows:

  • Won and collected a six-figure judgment on behalf of a cleint in a breach of contract action after trial in the Superior Court.

  • Successfully defended a residential building contractor in a district court jury trial.

  • Obtained a six-figure settlement on behalf of a client who suffered lead paint poisoning as a child.

  • Successfully defended a corporate client in a district court jury trial.

  • Successfully argued an appeal on behalf of a corporate client in a case arising under the Uniform Commercial Code.

  • Won a trial in New York Federal Court, successfully
    defending a small business client against trademark infringement claims
    brought against it by Starbucks Coffee.

I also have extensive experience in
all aspects of commecial and residential real property transactions and
have served on my town's Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals and
Conservation Commission.

I received a Bachelor's degree from
Castleton State College in Vermont where I was born and raised and am a
1995 cum laude graduate of Suffolk University Law School in Boston.

When I'm not in court, I can be found skiing, mountain biking or volunteering at Hale Reservation in Westwood, where I am on the Board of Directors.
