I grew up in Western New York, graduating from St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute in 2000. From there, I attended Colgate University and earned a B.A. in 2004.
After college, I spent two years at a large mortgage lender based in Western NY. I gained experience with numerous types of residential mortgage loans and learned a great deal about finance. This experience inspired me to seek a Master's of Business Administration and a Juris Doctor, which I earned from Valparaiso University in 2010.
After taking the New York State bar exam in 2010, I briefly clerked for a small boutique firm in downtown Buffalo, gaining experience with Federal criminal statutes and complex civil matters. I next took a job as a real estate paralegal with a large firm in downtown Buffalo. This job gave me significant experience with real estate, along with significant experience closing real estate transactions.
In late 2011, I opened my own firm. Since that time, I expanded my practice to handle a wide variety of matters, including real estate, landlord-tenant, estate planning, wills, guardianship matters, special needs planning, small business matters and estates, and other areas as well. I promise to give you practical advice, personalized service and zealous advocacy at a reasonable fee.
I am engaged with numerous local organizations, including the Erie County Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, and the Amherst Chamber of Commerce. I am also a parishioner at St. Joseph's University Parish in North Buffalo.
