I became a personal injury attorney because I love being in a courtroom for trial and I love helping people get compensated when they are harmed by other people’s negligence. I was admitted to the New York and Connecticut Bars in 1988, and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern and Southern Districts in 1989, and the United States Supreme Court in 1998. I attended the College of New Rochelle and received a B.A. degree, cum laude, in 1983. I went on to Pace University School of law and received my JD in 1988.
