A caring and compassionate attorney: For two decades before I became an attorney I worked for some of the largest corporations and government agencies in the world. That meant I had a significant amount of real-world experience and unlike many in our field, developed a kind personality along the way.
As a senior communications executive, I drove strategic communications and crisis management at IBM, JPMorgan, Siemens Healthcare, and Experian.
Additionally, I spent six years in Washington, working as a press secretary for two of the most powerful members of the United States Congress.
What changed: After a while, I just got tired of working for the nameless, faceless corporations and had enough of the partisan politics of Washington. I decided I wanted to help real people in crisis and focus efforts as a compassionate attorney. And here I am.
The most important element in choosing a lawyer is finding the right connection.
Divorces can take time. Trusting your attorney is key. Things move a lot smoother if we work well together. Let me be your compassionate attorney. And what better way to get to know me is to learn my likes and dislikes.
I am a family guy, who enjoys the simple pleasures. Having everyone around the table for dinner is worth a million bucks.
I love music - all kinds of music. It is what I use to relax after a long day (with a glass of Scotch, of course).
I love food - all kinds of food. My wife is a great cook.
I enjoy volunteering in my community. Even though the practice of law keeps me very busy, I still find time to work on giving back. I am a member of the Cold Spring Lions Club, the Our Lady of Loretto Knights of Columbus, United Way of Dutchess County and the Northern Dutchess NAACP.
Boy, do I hate bullies. And in my line of work, I see plenty. I don't stand for bullies. They better bring their A-Game if they are going to deal with me. I will not stand for my client to be pushed around by their spouse or an opposing attorney.
You will not be "nickel and dimed" either. My rates are fair and I will try and work with you. But don't go crazy here...respect for my time and profession is still required. Prompt payment is much appreciated.
