I was born in 1976 and growing up I always knew I would be an attorney. My uncle was a prosecutor and a successful defense attorney and I worshiped him, so why not do what he does? I graduated Cum Laude from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1998. I started Seton Hall University School of Law at Newark, New Jersey the fall of that same year, part time. Also that year i got a full time job at a law firm in Elizabeth, New Jersey from which it was an easy 15 minute commute to my night classes every weekday to law school for four years. I graduated Seton Hall in 2002 and immediately hung my shingles. I never worked for anyone as a practicing attorney. I did everything an attorney does at the firm I worked at while attending law school for four years, except of course represent clients in court although i accompanied the attorneys I worked for plenty of times on the cases I worked on, filed motions, briefs, etc… When I got my license to practice, BOOM, I went out on my own right away. I was 26 years old. My four years working and studying gave me the confidence and knowledge to take such a leap of faith at such a young age. I am still working for myself as a practicing attorney to this day representing clients in court charged with various criminal, drunk driving and traffic offenses. I also do a little bit of real estate work for clients who need such services, but the main focus of my practice is definitely on the criminal, drunk driving and traffic defense side of the law.
