Claimed Lawyer Profile

I am the Legal Director of Centurion Ministries, Inc., d/b/a "Centurion," since 2014. Centurion is a 501(C)(3) not for profit organization which was formed in 1982 and is the first organization in the United States devoted exclusively to freeing and exonerating individuals who are imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. Centurion is a national organization and represents individuals all over the United States. I have over 35 years of experience in post conviction litigation in addition to being an experienced criminal trial and appellate attorney. Prior to becoming Legal Director at Centurion I maintained a private law practice in Hoboken, New Jersey for over 35 years and in my practice I represented many of Centurion's clients.
