About Louis

Learn Louis’s areas of practice.

I pride myself on treating every client like they were a member of my own family. I provide dilligent and tenancious representation and am very passionate and protective of my clients. When you need an Attorney, I know that your case is one of the most important things going on in your life. I handle every case  with an enourmous amount of care and compassion. I know when to be aggressive with my opponents and when to tread lightly, experience dictates that each case and each client is unique and there is no such thing as one size fits all. One thing I personally guarantee each and every client is 150% effort on my part. I know that being selected as your Attorney is a privilege which is never to be taken lightly.

 

 As for my background outside the practice of law, I am a retired Sergeant from the NYPD having served 20 years. I am an avid motorcycle and car enthusiast, I moonlight as a Bass Player in a band called FDR Drive (top 40 dance hits) and  have been married to my sweetheart for the last 25 years and we have two great children in College.
