Offering clients a "Fresh Start" through bankruptcy, divorce, name change or home/business purchase.
Our firm mantra is "providing our clients with a fresh start" - whether assisting them through the often-difficult process of divorce, the confusing process of bankrutcy, the nerve-wracking but exciting process of purchasing a new home or business, or the formality-heavy process of changing one's name. Our firm's goal is to best prepare our clients for the next stage of their lives - a goal that we take extemely seriously.
Despite the long hours at the office, however, I also have a life outside of the law. In additon to being an attorney and spending time with my family, I am also an author, having written the legal thrillers "In His Ex-Wife's Defense," "In His Own Defense," and "Deadly Fantasy: A Baseball Story". All books are available on amazon.com and for Kindle.
I recently concluded a five-year stint as the co-Chairman of the NJ Chapter of the Franklin & Marshall College Alumni Association, and serve as the Commissioner of a Fantasy Baseball League in my spare time.
