Born and raised in New Hampshire, I've been practicing since 1986 and joined the firm in 2006, becoming a partner in 2007.  As a native of New Hampshire, I'm very familiar with the local community.  In addition to a statewide New Hampshire practice in District, Family and Superior Courts, I am licensed in the United States District Court of New Hampshire, and have been a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association since September of 1994.  I am a member of the American Bar Association, the Manchester NH Bar Association and the New Hampshire Association for Justice as well as being a certified Superior Court Mediator.  I concentrate my practice in Worker’s Compensation, Family Law, Personal Injury and Social Security Disability claims.  With his years of experience, I head the firm’s Family Law Department.  I will continue my commitment to offer quality legal services to provide clients prompt, courteous and aggressive, yet professional, representation, maintaining high standards to ensure each client receives the attention and representation their individual matter require and deserve.

Terrible divorce attorney
John failed miserably in my divorce. I got defaulted because he failed to provide my ex husbands attorney with my paperwork by the deadline he was given by the court. He NEVER returns phone calls or emails. I ended up more in debt than I was before. Do not use him for divorce...and especially if he was recommended by the low cost legal aide. I got buried!! If i could give zero stars...I would!
