About me

I am a dedicated and experienced attorney, admitted to practice law before the New York State Courts and in the Federal Courts of the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York. I have primarily worked in real estate and landlord-tenant litigation as well as appellate practice (Appellate Divisions of the First and Second Department).

I earned my J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 2007. While at Georgetown, I performed extensive pro bono work defending low-income and/or elderly homeowners and tenants. I am a lifelong New York City resident, and earned my B.A. from New York University in 2004. I am a native speaker of both English and Greek, with a conversational understanding of Italian.
