Biography

I have been a practicing attorney for 45 years. I started out as a Prosecutor with the NJ Attorney General's Office. I have been a Criminal Defense Attorney for 42 years. My specialties include serious state and federal cases related to all types of Fraud, Drugs, Theft, Murder, Extortion, Assault,Threats, Bribery, Conspiracy and other White Collar and Violent Crimes.

I have personally handled in excess of 75 jury trials. I have been certified by the State of New Jersey as a Criminal Attorney for 38 years. I am a former President of the Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers of New Jersey. I have been and presently retain the status of a "Best Lawyer" and "Super Lawyer". At one point during my career I was victorious in eight straight jury trials.

No challenge is too great and I represent people in state, federal and municipal court throughout the State of New Jersey.
