Claimed Lawyer Profile

I was born in Rochester, NY, and raised in the suburb of Brighton.

I attended McQuaid Jesuit High School, and graduated in the Class of 1970. I went to Boston College, graduating with honors in 1974. I completed a graduate course at Northeastern University, receiving a Master of Public Administration degree in 1977.

I then worked for a NYS Assemblyman for two legislative sessions, leaving Albany to go to law school, Western New England School of Law, from 1978-1981.

Following Bar exams, I was admitted to the practice of law in Massachusetts (1981), New York State and US Courts (1982).

I married another attorney, and began the general practice of law, in Rochester in 1982. We welcomed daughters to our family in 1986, 1987, 1989 and 1992.

Since 1982 I have been engaged in the general practice of law, covering a wide variety of "people law": estates, criminal law, divorce, contracts, real estate, personal injury, etc. During this time, I successfully prosecuted several wrongful death cases.

We reside in Pittsford, NY. Our daughters are now 17 to 23 years of age: one has graduated from college, two are in college, and one finishes high school this spring. Two dogs and one cat complete the family.
