About me

I live in Brooklyn, am married and have a son. When I'm not in the office I enjoy the outdoors.  I love astronomy, photograph, biking, snowshoeing, rock scrabling, and most of all hiking, especially in the mountains.  My son and I am a members of the Catskills 3500 Club.  That means that we have hiked all 35 peaks of the Catkills that are over 3,500 feet, and we need 4 of them again in the winter. 


When you visit my office you will notice my love of the outdoors and nature.  From the music in my waiting room (and if you are on hold on the the telephone) to the photos that I have taken that are on the walls of my office and the plants.


I became a lawyer in order to help others.  This is one of the ways in which I try to make a positive difference in the world. When you retain our office to represent you, you become more than a client, you become a member of our extended family.  That means that any time you have a legal question, you are just a phone call, email or office visit away from a free consultation to answer your question.
