I am proud to be a lawyer. It has been my honor for 30 years and counting to be a trial lawyer in New Jersey representing individuals whose claims are meritorious and for whom it is critically important to recover damages for the wrongs committed against them. Being a lawyer has allowed me to use my innate and learned abilities to passionately, aggressively, and effectively advocate on behalf of those who have been harmed due to the malicious, intentional, or negligent conduct of others. Every day I am enthused to work for and with my clients as part of a collaborative transparent effort to obtain for them the result they have hired me to achieve.
I have always been drawn to the opportunity to right the wrong and have a strong disdain for the bully – whether it be a person or business. My skills as a lawyer serve to balance the playing field for my clients who invariably lack the money and resources of their opponent. I did not become a lawyer as my life‘s work in order to represent the money interests of too big to fail insurance companies or powerful big businesses. Let me be clear: I embrace the challenge of representing the Davids of the world against the Goliaths in our midst; I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I am a Jersey boy. Therefore, it is apt that my journey to becoming a New Jersey employment attorney began with my years attending Rutgers – The State University of New Jersey. In 1983, I received a Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree in Economics from Rutgers. Thereafter, I attended Rutgers University Law School receiving my Juris Doctorate (J.D.) degree in 1986. I obtained my New Jersey license to practice law in 1986 as well.
