Why did you become an attorney?

Even as a young kid fighting for injustice, helping downtrodden and speaking out against wrongs has always been in my blood. As a lawyer, I make it my top priority to fight hard for my clients in every situation and to give them maximum attention at all times.

What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?

I come from a blue-collar small town background which taught me values of what's right vs what's wrong. I have also been very heavily involved in athletics my whole life which has have been of tremendous benefit to my legal career and ability to positively interact with people and the problems they face.

What made you choose your primary specialty focus of law?

Throughout my legal career, the Court-Room has been like a second home. I am very comfortable in Courtroom settings as I have practiced in all local courts on a daily basis for over 25 years. That experience and daily contact goes a long long way to meeting clients needs.

What makes your law firm unique?

I take great pride in serving thousands and thousands of clients for over 20 years in the same office location. Every client is always kept up to date on every aspect of their case as soon as it happens. Clients always immediately receive copies of all their paperwork and EVERY single phone call is returned at all times. I work very hard and take very seriously the responsibility I owe to thoroughly represent every client for whatever their legal needs may be. My ability to confidently communicate and establish wonderful working relationships with clients and court personnel is of highest degree.

Describe your ideal client.

I have represented Individuals, Businesses, Government Entities and clients from all walks of life and backgrounds. I am happy to take on any client at any time in order to assist them with their legal issues.

Describe your personal interest and hobbies.

As a father of three children, most of my hobbies and interests center around their activities. I have always been involved in national, state and local radio shows throughout my professional career as a host, expert commentator and analyst. I am an avid sports fan and heavily engaged as a player, coach, administrator and trivia. I am also fluent in Italian.
