For me, becoming a lawyer has always been about helping others seek justice and fighting for the rights of our clients. As a former prosecutor in the Suffolk District Attorney’s office, I began to understand what was important to jurors in making their determinations which helped me in becoming an effective trial lawyer.

As a proud Iraq Veteran and former Army Captain, I understand how important the words service and duty are. I bring these qualities with me into the courtroom where I help clients obtain millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts in New York State.
