I provide a wide range of services for small and mid-size Long Island businesses, depending on the needs of the particular clients. For some, they know they have a trustworthy attorney if the need ever arises. For others, I provide transactional and litigation services as a regular part of their business model.
Trusted; Efficient; Intelligent
Municipal law has been a major part of my practice throughout my career, starting with interning for multiple government agencies during law school, then gaining substantial experience with Plaintiff's civil rights and tort-based claims, and for the last several years concentrating on municipal defense. My experience includes Section 1983 actions, tort claims, employment claims, Article 78 proceedings, and a variety of other matters.
Prompt; Informed; Effective.
I provide transactional, litigation, and consulting services in a broad range of real property matters. I have represented, among others, purchasers, sellers, developers, lessees and lessors, brokers, appraisers, contractors, investors, lenders, and local governments.
Settlements; Trials; Results
I have a solid background in personal injury litigation. It is an area of law that I know well. I have the experience necessary to confidently assess the value of an injury; and the trial and negotiation skills necessary to effectively maximize a plaintiff's recovery or minimize a defendant's exposure. I approach the practice with compassion and respect, understanding that money can never truly compensate for pain and suffering, and re-living a traumatic event through litigation can be difficult.
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; and for all my clients, I consistently provide reliable high-quality representation. I am familiar with the myriad of laws and regulations governing the employment relationship, as well as various procedural avenues through which these types of disputes are addressed.
I am qualified and experienced with both state and federal appellate litigation. In each of the substantive areas in which I practice, I am adept at analyzing the record before the lower court, identifying issues and conducting in-depth research and analysis, and persuasively presenting reasons why a trial level decision should be reversed or affirmed.
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. I can intelligently debate a nuanced issue with the most erudite jurist, without losing the ability connect with the common sense and empathy of an everyday juror.
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. I spent years training to become a top trial attorney: first in mock trial and moot court during school, then working with experienced and well-known litigators, then taking on large and complex matters myself.
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,
