About me

I have been fighting for the rights of those accused of crimes for the past fifteen years.  I graduated from Northeastern University School of Law in 1997, and went to work in the Staff Attorney's Office at the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, where I worked on both civil and criminal appeals.  I then joined the prestigious Boston law firm of Stern, Shapiro, Weissberg & Garin, LLP, where I practiced criminal defense and civil litigation.  After a decade, I decided that the best way for me to represent my clients with the passion and determination each client deserves was to open my own law practice.  Although criminal defense is the majority of my practice, I also bring that same passion, commitment , and expertise to employment law and personal injury litigation.
