Providing Representation in Tompkins and its surrounding counties. 
My goal is to provide you with the best advice possible so that you can make the best decision for your situation.  I take pride in my commitment to my clients and work to fulfill their needs in a timely and efficient manner.  Whether your case is simple or complex rest assured that I will work hard to diligently protect your interests.          
A graduate of New York Law School, I opened my practice in New York in 2007.  Since then I have primarily focused on criminal defense and family court litigation but handled other matters as well.  Until 2009 I also continued to work on regulatory matters for the District of Columbia.

Outside of my law practice I am active in my community.  I have been a member of the Dryden Town Board since 2008, and I am a member of the Tompkins County Bar Association, Dryden Kiwanis, and Ithaca Rotary.
