Trusted; Intelligent; Experienced
I have the privilege of representing numerous local governments in matters involving civil rights, tort-based claims, and zoning and land use. It is an interesting and often rewarding area of practice.
I provide a wide range of transactional and litigation services for small and mid-size Long Island businesses. I help people avoid future difficulty and expense by doing things right in the first place, and can help clean them up when they weren't or when otherwise unavoidable disputes arise.
Informed; Effective; Efficient
Real estate transactions should ideally be smooth and simple. I try to keep them that way. I have also helped numerous client resolve complicated title and other issues that would have otherwise posed major problems.
Settlements; Trials; Results
Personal injury was my first niche practice area during and following law school, and it has remained an important part of my practice throughout my career. It is an area of law that I know well from both the plaintiff and defense sides, and I have handled cases ranging from basic car accidents and slip and falls to catastrophic injuries.
Knowledgeable; Skilled; Professional.
For businesses, I provide litigation, administrative, and consulting services; for employees who have been the victim of discrimination or harassment, I can help them obtain appropriate compensation. Over time, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience dealing with the various state and federal regulations that govern the employment relationship.
In addition to trial-level litigation, I have extensive experience with both state and federal appellate practice in each of the substantive legal areas I practice in. From analyzing the record before the lower court, to identifying issues and conducting in-depth research and analysis, to persuasively presenting reasons why a trial level decision should be reversed or affirmed, I thoroughly enjoy and excel at appellate work.
I approach every aspect of my practice with pride, integrity, and professionalism. My clients receive candid advice and zealous advocacy. Generally, my approach to practicing law is a balance between scholarship and pragmatism. I enjoy when I have an opportunity to do a deep dive into an interesting or novel question, but I also take a goal oriented and practical approach to overall litigation strategy. Writing persuasively to a judge about a nuanced point of law, making an emotional connection with a juror, and being able to step back and consider how each step in a case leads towards reaching the best result for your client, are not always the same skillset, but they are each skillsets that I have developed throughout my career.
I am a New York native. I was born in Richmond Hill, Queens; went to St. John's University for college; and then attended Brooklyn Law School; and have primarily practiced on Long Island (with occasional cases in the City or elsewhere) since 2010. I spent years focused on trying become a top trial attorney: first in mock trial and moot court during school, then working with and providing research and writing to assist nationally-recognized litigators; then having the opportunity to start trying cases on my own and starting early in my career. I respect the law, and try to elevate how I practice accordingly.
Currently, I live in Stonybrook with my wife and daughter, and I am counsel to an outstanding law firm concentrating in municipal and insurance defense with offices in Smithtown, Garden City, and Albany,
