I’ve honed my litigation skills over the last 12 years handling a wide array of complex civil cases for a broad range of clients.
Having served as an Assistant Attorney General in Massachusetts for several years, and also in several high-profile law firms, I’ve dealt with a wide range of disputes. My experience has included breach of contract and business torts, securities litigation, class actions, employment, eminent domain, and fraud. My career has allowed me to work in all phases of civil litigation, including jury trials, representing clients at mediation, and managing electronic discovery in large cases.
Dealing with this kind of complexity and breadth has helped me develop a mind for even the tiniest details without losing sight of the big picture. Combine that with sound judgment born from experience, and tenacity sharpened by numerous encounters with difficult opponents, and you have a pretty good picture of who I am as an attorney.
Oh, and I confess — I love trials. In fact, I do them for fun. Coaching and judging high school mock trials is my favorite pastime. That interest has led to me to serve on the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Mock Trial Committee for over ten years, including as a past Chair of the Committee. So I guess you could say that trials are much more than a career for me. One colleague once described me as a “Student of Persuasion.”
Given my years in both private practice and the public sector, along with my desire to do excellent work for a variety of clients, I knew that I could meet a great need in the legal services market.
So I decided to start my own law practice, based on the conviction that it is possible to provide high-quality legal representation without the expected high price of the “big” firms. I’ve proven that it can be done. And that brings me great satisfaction both personally and professionally.
