The courtroom has been my home for 45 years. I have been a criminal prosecutor, house counsel for a major insurance company, a private practitioner, and a longtime partner of a law firm specializing in civil litigation for both plaintiffs and defendants. In each of these endeavors a well prepared prosecution or defense is crucial to success.  I have tried cases throughout New Jersey for a variety of corporate and individual clients, on legal issues involving personal injuries, contracts and commercial matters and most recently became an arbitrator/mediator. I first served as a Deputy Attorney General for the Division of Criminal Justice as a trial attorney handling multi-defendant, State Grand Jury cases and then became a staff attorney with the house counsel arm of Continental Insurance Company, served as a member of the Monmouth County Tourism Advisory Council and became its chairman in 1981. I served as a member of the Executive Committee of the New Jersey Civil Trial Bar, a member of the Ocean County District IIIA Ethics Committee, and I was President of the Ocean County Bar Association. I have passed the requirements to become a R. 1:40 Qualified Mediator and Arbitrator, and now add these areas of alternative dispute resolution to my practice. For the past 18 years, I have achieved the distinction of the highest possible peer review rating given to attorneys for legal ability and ethical standards by Martindale Hubbell.

No stranger to competition away from the law, I enjoy sailing and earned distinction as a Princeton footballer on some of its storied teams of the late 60s.

I am a proud member of the Ocean County and New Jersey State Bar Associations, as well as the American Association for Justice, and I have been admitted to practice before the Federal Court of the Third Circuit as well as the United States Supreme Court.
