About me

 


Over the years, I believe I have helped others improve their quality of life as a lawyer and educator.  I grew up in and around New York City, went to college in Dutchess County, NY and Hartford, CT.


 


I practice law in Western NY and represent clients from around the U.S.


 


I reside in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada (a 20 minute drive from Niagara Falls, NY) with my wife, Susan, a writer, editor, and design professional, my step-daughter, Tori,  our dogs, Chase (sheltie) and Chevy (golden retriever), and a black and white spotted cat named 'Tiny Cow'. 


 


I am a dedicated fan of the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, NY Mets, Toronto Blue Jays, and Toronto Raptors.


 


My hobbies include: Sports (basketball; softball; and volleyball); Gardening; Reading; Traveling; and fixing things around our house (sometimes successfully).
