We listen, we empower, and we fight for the injured!
What is your story?
My story is that I'm an author.
I began my practice at Shipman and Goodwin, woking as an associate in their Land Use division where I represented both developers and municipalities before zoning boards and in superior court.
I left Shipman and Goodwin to pursue public service at the State of Connecticut's Legislative Commissioner's office (LCO). At LCO I advised the planning and development committee and the housing committee. I drafted bills and statutes.
Please let me know how I can help you. My practice is 100% devoted to assisting injured clients.
I use my skills as an author to tell your story.
