About me

I have been working in Rhode Island as a civil trial attorney for the past thirty years. I spent my  first nine years working as a defense attorney for insurance companies, and have worked solely for personal injury victims since then. You will find that my bilingual staff and I firmly believe that hard work and close, ongoing contact with clients are essential to achieving the best results for them. ​As a solo practitioner, my office represents civil claimants and plaintiffs exclusively. We have settled, arbitrated and tried hundreds of civil matters, with excellent results. I will fight hard to win your case, and I don't get paid unless you win.Call (401) 589-2661, to set up your free consultation.
