About me

I received my Juris Doctorate degree from the New England School of Law in 2003, and my Bachelor of Science degree in Management from the University of Massachusetts Boston, with a concentration in Finance in 1999.


At the New England School of Law I was recognized as a New England Scholar and a recipient of the New England School of Law Service Award. I assisted students as a Legal Research Advisor and volunteer as a judge for Moot Court, both as part of the legal writing program.


Additionally, while at the New England School of Law, I served on the executive board of the New England Journal of Criminal and Civil Confinement as the Managing Business Editor. As the Managing Business Editor, I oversaw the Journal’s Confinement Outreach Program and its 2003 symposium: Offender Sentencing and Re-entry: Changing Policies for Times of Budget Restraint.


I am admitted to practice before the Massachusetts State Courts and the Federal District Court for Massachusetts, including the Bankruptcy Court. I also serves on my town's Zoning Board of Appeals. My legal experience includes handling matters involving debtor and creditor rights, product liability, consumer protection, family law, and general litigation.



CAUTION -- this site's "rating system" is based on criteria that Avvo believes to be important and by assigning values to those criteria. In my opinion, the qualities that make a good lawyer are difficult to quantify. I do not endorse their system or ratings. If you need a lawyer, talk to friends and acquaintances whose opinion you trust.
