I am a Certified Civil Trial Attorney who litigates in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice and general civil litigation on behalf of injured clients.
I have tried more than 100 jury trials during my over 33 years of legal experience. I am a graduate of Rutgers University – Camden College of Arts and Sciences (B.A. 1974) and Rutgers University – Camden School of Law (Juris Doctor 1981).
As a partner with Fontanella, Benevento, Galluccio & Smith, I've won multiple six and seven-figure settlements and verdicts on behalf of injured clients, including medical malpractice claims against doctors, hospitals, nursing homes and dentists. I've also represented accident victims in construction and motor vehicle accidents.
I'm a member of the American Association for Justice and the American Civil Liberties Union and a former member of the Board of Education for Rockaway Township (Morris County) and served as a volunteer EMT for many years with the Ocean City, NJ, Rescue Squad.
