About Our Practice

I have now been practicing law for more than 28 years, either as a member of a larger firm, a small firm owner, and/or as a sole practitioner.  In 1983, I began practicing law in the area of commercial litigation, more specifically in the area of trade secrets and propriety information.  I pride myself on the fact that I still represent today my very first clients.

In the mid-1980s, I continued to specialize predominantly in litigation, but the focus of my practice became the representation of small businesses and small business owners, many of them involved in the real estate industry, including builders, developers, realtors, mortgage brokers, and home or property owners.  I also began doing more transactional work for my clients, including incorporations, general real estate and business contracts, employment contracts,  wills, trusts and probate. 

My greatest pleasure in the practice of law is helping fledging business owners set up their new businesses, helping them grow and flourish,  serving the personal broader legal needs of their owners and employees, handling their basic document needs and, when necessary, handling their litigation and/or alternative dispute resolution needs either as plaintiff or defendant. 

Within the last few years, Superior Court Judges have called upon me to serve as special master, receiver and/or commissioner in real estate matters, including quiet title actions. I also offer services, and have been trained, as a third-party, court-registered "neutral" in mediation proceedings. 

Since I started my own business in 1992, I have variously had associates and/or worked within a collaborative legal practice, sharing space with several other attorneys. Currently, I am a sole practitioner, but I network with a wide variety of legal and financial professionals. If you need a lawyer, please give us a call to let us know how we can best serve you.  If we cannot fulfill your needs, we will do our best to find you someone who can.
