About me

I am a merit scholarship recipient and graduate of St. Thomas University School of Law.  I am licensed to practice law in Florida, Indiana, and New York.


I began my legal career working as a Certified Legal Intern with the Office of the State Attorney in both Broward County and Bradenton, Florida where I participated in several criminal jury trials, including DUIs.


Prior to joining Capofari Law, I was an associate attorney with two private law firms on Staten Island, practicing in the areas of Elder Law and Family Law.
