Even before becoming an attorney I spent my career serving the public. Working in constituent relations for a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, I handled a myriad of cases in a number of different fields, including Immigration and Veterans Affairs.
While working full time, I obtained two degrees from St. John’s University, a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies and a Juris Doctorate. Before graduating summa cum laude from St. John’s University’s undergraduate program, I captained the University’s trial competition team, helping our coaches lead us through a number of trial competitions. Afterwards, I attended St. John’s University School of Law, and served as the Executive Director on the board of the Polestino Trial Advocacy Institute. During my time as a member of the Polestino Trial Advocacy Institute, I competed in a number of trial competitions, placing in most of them, including the John Marshall Law School/American Bar Association Criminal Justice Trial Competition, where my team ranked second.
After graduating from St. John’s University School of Law, I became a prosecutor in Queens County under the Honorable Richard A. Brown. During my tenure as a prosecutor, I investigated and prosecuted numerous cases, ranging from misdemeanors to serious felony offenses. By handling these cases I gained valuable experience, often receiving the cases immediately after arraignment and handling them to their conclusions.
Throughout my career, I have helped people through some of the worst tragedies of their lives. This experience allows me to understand the difficulties that my clients face, and gives me the ability to handle each and every case with the compassion and dedication that I know my clients expect and deserve.
If you or a loved one has been arrested for any crime, I am available to help you twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, just call my office at (631) 650-6900 or schedule a time to speak to set up a free consultation.
