My focus is to maintain open and concise communication with my clients and parties to litigation, so as to achieve just resolution that is in their best interest. It is my mission to provide my clients with clear and concise legal analysis and litigation plans to help foster a level of confidence in our firm that sets us apart from the rest.”

He competed in oral advocacy competitions, including the Wagner Labor & Employment Law Moot Court Competition in New York City which was based on a fictitious Jones Act case.
