About me

I am admitted to practice before the courts of New York as well as the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. I am a member of the Nassau County Bar Association, the Federal Bar Council and the Federal Bar Association, and currently serve as Secretary of the Federal Bar Association's Eastern District of New York Chapter.


Prior to joining Lazer Aptheker Rosella & Yedid, P.C., I served as a law clerk to the Honorable Jacob Mishler, U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of New York and also as an associate at the New York City law firm of Rosenman & Colin, LLP. I have also served as an Adjunct Professor of Legal Methods at the Touro School of Law.


I am actively involved as a volunteer with the Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island, an organization dedicated to providing education, counseling and residential care to Long Island residents with epilepsy, developmental disabilities and related conditions.
