About me

Our motto is "We are here to help."  That is why we go to work - to fight for the rights of our clients when they are facing difficult times or difficult problems. 

On the lighter side, I enjoy time with my family and am involved in various other activates.  For 11 years I coached succor.  I am currently Commodore of South Shore Yacht Club and am involved in various boating and sailboat race events.
