About me

I began practicing law in 2004. I took the bar in July of that year, and I was sworn in on December 8, 2004. I started in September of 2004 as a law clerk for the Honorable Ross R. Anzalid, P.J.S.C. in Union County. I assisted him with his motion calendar. I also helped him write opinions. After completing my clerkship, I began working for a large personal injury law firm in Edison, NJ. I immediately began trying cases. I always looked at trials as an opportunity. I felt that it was such an honor to be trusted with these issues. I prepared diligently and always spent time with my clients to ensure they were prepared for what would happen at trial. This preparation paid off. I was able to demonstrate my client's losses to the jury and was successful in recovering on their behalf.


After about seven years, I moved to another law firm in Edison, looking for another challenge. I was able to handle larger cases and continued the success I began. I always tried to ensure that my clients understood the process and what they would face during the course of a trial. 


In January of 2015, I had the opportunity to begin my own law firm. It has been such an honor to have the trust of my clients. I have continued with the approach that I had throughout my career. Preparation is everything. I truly believe that. Everyday, I approach each of my files with an eye towards ensuring my clients are well prepared for each aspect of litigation.
