We concentrate in Family/Matrimonial law, commercial litigation and military administrative/UCMJ
I've been an attorney since 1986. My first job as an attorney was an officer in the United States Army. When I got off active duty, I stayed with the reserves and am currently a lieutenant colonel and adviser to the commanding general of the 78th Training Division. I have been awarded the Meritorous Service Medal and several Army Achievement medals.
When I came off Active Duty, I joined the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office where I prosecuted a number of serious crimes.
I left the DA's office for private practice in 1993. First, I joined a large law firm, but was dissatisifed with the impersonal way clients were treated. I moved to a smaller 4 person firm in 1994 and in 2002 opened my own practice.
In 2007, my army colleague, George Sava, joined me and we began practicing under the name of Port and Sava.
Our philosophy is very simple and is rooted in our military background. The soldier values we bring to our practice are: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage.
At Port and Sava, we never forget is it your life and we are working to get your life back on track. We take a team approach, and the client is an essential part of the time. No major decisions are made without the client's input and approval.
