I love and enjoy practicing law, helping people, and solving problems that make a difference in people’s lives.

If you want a caring, attentive and effective lawyer, you don’t have to look any further! My offices are on Long Island and we practice in Nassau & Suffolk Counties, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and The Bronx.

We concentrate in Accident Cases of all type, including auto, work place, slip, trip & fall, construction site accidents and premises liability. We also handle Family & Matrimonial/Divorce Law; Estate Planning & Administration; Real Estate; and Litigation.

Accidents Happen. But Having a Good Lawyer is No Accident. Call us. We can help.

Quality Representation You Need….Respect, Compassion & Attention You Deserve.

I am a graduate of the New York University School of Law; a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers’ Association, American Trial Lawyers of America, New York State Bar Association, and the Nassau County Bar Association. I am an active member of the Nassau County Bar’s Mentoring program and Mock Trial program where I am an Attorney-Coach for a High School Mock Trial Team.

I am also the President & a Board Member of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce.

I’ve been practicing law for over 30 years, working to solving problems for individuals and families on Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan. My offices are in Plainview, Long Island and I practice throughout the area, including all of New York City. I enjoy helping people and strive to make a difference in their lives by providing clients with high-quality services in the area of personal injury, family law, civil litigation, estate planning and real estate law. Being a lawyer has enabled me to use the law to find solutions and make an impact on people’s lives: recovering from a serious accident, going through a difficult divorce or planning for the future.


I was born in Brooklyn and grew up in Jamaica & Flushing, Queens. I’ve been living in Plainview for over 25 years. I am married to Gail and we are the proud parents of two sons, Joshua and Matthew. Joshua is a practicing attorney in Manhattan and Matthew is a music teacher in the Syosset public schools.


I am avid bicyclist and in nice weather you can see me cycling all over Long Island. I also love to garden and read. One of my favorite vacations spots is Hawaii (Aloha!); my favorite foods are pizza, peanut butter and ice-cream!
