With over 25 years experience, I seek to achieve my client's aims as efficiently and effectively as possible. I litigate in the Massachusetts State Courts and in Federal Court. At the outset, I assess the collectibilty of all claims and proceed accordingly. In the proper case, i will apply for prejudgment remedies, such as bank account attachments, real estate attachments, actions to reach and apply (e.g. a debt owed to the debtor) and special attachments (e.g where property is held in trust).
I believe it is important to treat each client with respect and I pay careful attention to the progress of all of my cases. I am accessible and responsive. I strive to uphold a high level of honesty and integrity in all of my dealings with clients and opposing counsel.
When necessary, I collaborate with lawyers in other jurisdictions and with lawyers who have other areas of expertise, such as real estate, chap 11 (reorganization) bankruptcy, I also manage collection portfolios for commercial clients.
