Firm History and Philosophy

Upon graduating with honors from Suffolk University Law School, in Boston, Massachusetts, I landed a position as the Assistant District Attorney for Bristol County. As an Assistant District Attorney, I handled a wide variety of criminal cases, and I learned how the system works from the state's point of view. I gained invaluable courtroom experience, and I built mutually respectful relationships with my fellow colleagues — lawyers and judges alike.

Moreover, I came to understand how and why cases are dismissed or why they proceed to trial. There can be no doubt that this knowledge has made me a better attorney.

After five years as an Assistant District Attorney, I decided to open my own practice so that I could better serve my clients. Since 1997, I have proudly offered a full range of criminal defense, family law, and personal injury litigation advice and representation. As your attorney, I will take very seriously the fact that you are likely facing legal difficulties that could have an enormous impact on the rest of your life. Likewise, I will take the time necessary to ensure that your problems are solved to the fullest extent that the law allows.
