I have practiced in several areas of law over the years: criminal defense both adult and juvenile, matrimonial, collections, and now special education and immigration. I worked in politics as a researcher and speechwriter, taught law and US history for years as well, sat in on Child Study Team meetings and administered IEPs and 504 plans. I've been honored by the White House and the NJ State legislature for citizenship and democracy education. I'm a published author and many of my chapters appear in journals and scholarly publications such as an ABA volume. I am at ease speaking before small groups and large crowds.
