I tirelessly protect the economic interests of my clients and the well-being of their children
Early in my career I served as a judicial law clerk for the Chief Judge of the United States District Court (federal court) in New Jersey.
My enire practice has been focussed on litigation - for personal injury matters and for divorce matters.
I was a certified trial attorney in New Jersey for over 25 yeasrs- something only about 5% of the lawyers in the state achieve.
In addition to my law practice, i have had a career of public service. I was a councilman in mount Laurel township for three years, Mayor for one year and a planning board member for two years.
I have also been involved with the youth of my community. i coached baseball for over seven years and was the director of the entire baseball program for two years. As director, i rzn a program with over 70 coaches, forty team and about 500 youngsters.
I have been teaching other lawyers how to be good trial lawyers for over ten years. i have taught in NJ, CO, IL and NM. I am also an adjunct professor at the Rutgers School of Law.
I have been fortunate to argue a number of cases in the appellate courts in New Jersey, including the New Jersey supreme Court.
I have been published in the family law area and have recently produced a guide to the new alimony law.
