I decided to become an attorney after I was arrested on a criminal charge due to a landlord dispute. I understand firsthand how stressful it is to face this process with an attorney who does not listen to you nor fully represent your needs. My second lawyer, however, dedicated his time and energy to avidly protecting my rights and helping me pursue the best outcome possible. His work inspired me to go to law school so I could help people in the same way he helped me.

Dedication To My Clients In All I Do

Born and raised in Brooklyn, I have been helping New York residents with a vast array of criminal charges for more than 15 years. I have won an acquittal after the trial in each of the five boroughs of New York City, a feat that few practicing attorneys can claim. I have also achieved a peer review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell.

When I’m not in my office, I enjoy training for and running marathons. I firmly believe that marathon runners make great attorneys — we understand the value of setting goals and planning an appropriate pace at which to achieve them. I love the work I do and I am committed to helping my clients plan for a brighter future, regardless of the nature of their crime.
