I have been an attorney since 1988 and continue to love my profession. It is not for everyone as it is a much of a lifestyle that remains with me even after I lock the doors of my office when I go home at night. I am a classic "Type-A" person which is a quality necessary to be a good attorney. Even on weekends, I cannot resist having all calls from my office transferred to my cellular telephone as I am a proverbial "junkie" for new legal adventures. Even my hobby, aviation, requires that I am constantly thinking, active and always planning several steps ahead. This is how I practice law.
Fortunately, my wife is my law partner. She too, as a highly experienced and renowned domestic relations attorney, understands and shares my zeal and my need, from a professional standpont, for action, excitement and conquest.. We have two active offices in Massachusetts, one in Brookline, Ma, and the other in Brockton, Ma. There are two fine associates who work for us making the total number of attorneys in our offices numbered at four. We are big enough to take on the large matters and yet small enough that each and every one of us has close relationships with out clients.
I am a graduate of Hofstra University in 1984 and graduated the New England School of Law in 1988. I am admitted to both the Massachusetts Bar and the local Federal Courts.
While I have a liberal bent on social policy, I believe that families, regardless of how they are composed, are the most important and fundamental building blocks of our society. In that manner, I am old fashioned and still believe that for our laws to be just, fair and effective, we all must have strong educational and moral foundations. This is a constant theme in how I provide representation to my clients.
