Why Am I Different From Others?
I have now been a criminal defense lawyer, and a champion of justice, for almost twenty nine years. My passion for defending the accused has never diminished and has continued to flourish. To this day I fight to defend those in need of protection from a system that often times seems to have run amuck. I work tirelessly to make every effort imaginable to obtain for my clients a second chance. I personally assure each and every client that I represent that they will receive high energy, aggressive and passionate representation, and that they will always be able to contact their attorney.
I take pride in my close and regular communication with my clients, thorough investigations of every case, and an aggressive and zealous protection of my client’s rights. Once you become my client, work will commence immediately in order to ensure that you have the best chance possible for a successful resolution of all your criminal charges. My level of success over the years speaks for itself as does my reputation in the legal community as a tough and fearless warrior who goes to the front line and into the trenches whenever necessary to attain a successful result for my client.
I grew up on Long Island, New York, and achieved my undergraduate degree in communications from Michigan State University in 1981. I attended Nova Southeastern Law School (originally named Nova Law School) in Florida with the intention of becoming a criminal defense lawyer upon receiving my degree. I graduated law school in 1986.
After completion of my undergraduate degree in communications from Michigan State University, I returned to Long Island where I became involved in the business of commercial real estate. Despite attaining success in this work, I felt unfulfilled as a person. Although I was always a sympathizer for the underdog and the downtrodden, I found myself having an increased desire to become more actively involved with reaching out and assisting good people being bulldozed by the system.
I decided to do something about the void I was experiencing. I had a deep desire to prevent injustices and I felt a calling to prevent the government’s abuse of authority. I decided to pursue this calling by becoming an attorney.
I was immediately hired as a public defender in Broward County, Florida upon graduating from Nova Southeastern Law School. It was there that I was able to hone my skills as a trial attorney and gain invaluable experience representing individuals charged with virtually crime imaginable. In my 13 years as a public defender, I was the lead attorney in over seventy-five jury trials, both misdemeanors and felonies, from DUI’s to first degree murders.
Upon leaving the Public Defender’s Office in 1999, I opened my own law office. I have continued to represent clients at virtually every level in the criminal justice system, both in state and federal court, over the past sixteen years in private practice.
