For more than 45 years, my primary goal has been to serve the needs of my clients. I love doing the work that I do, and I never have wanted to be anything other than a lawyer. I am happy to meet with clients at times that suit their convenience and at places of their choice throughout Rockland, Bergen and Orange Counties.
