About me

My committment to Buffalo and the Western New York region is demonstrated by my over 30 years of practice.  I understand the value of hardwork.  The community and my peers know me for my willingness to work and go the extra mile.  Other lawyers often ask me to handle their trial matters to maximize client's recovery.
