Attorney Profile      

I have been engaged in the general civil commercial practice of law, as an associate attorney, partner, and professional corporation for more than twenty-five (25) years and am admitted to practice law in both the states of New York and New Jersey.

Following graduation from the State University of New York at Buffalo (Summa Cum Laude) and thereafter from the Cornell University School of Law, I served as Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Eugene D. Serpentelli of the New Jersey Superior Court for the 1984-85 Term assigned to adjudicate statewide exclusionary zoning disputes between real estate developers, municipalities, and public interest and civic organizations.

Over the years in private law practice, I have cultivated an interest and expertise in all matters of real estate development, real estate purchases, sales, and leases (from single family homes, condominiums, co-operatives, multi-family apartment houses, and mixed use buildings to improved and unimproved commercial properties), land use and zoning, corporate and commercial business transactions, employment and consultancy contracts, employer-employee relations, joint business ventures of all types, and tangentially related commercial litigation covering a broad spectrum of size and complexity.

I have served as a member of the Nassau County Republican Committee as a committeeman for the Mineola, New York Executive Area, as President and Treasurer of the Mineola Republican Club and Committee, and as Campaign Chair for the Committee to Re-Elect Judge Robert Rosenthal to the Nassau County District Court.  I have taught paralegal courses in Real Estate and Business Law as an Adjunct Instructor at Briarcliffe College, have served as a Compulsory Arbitrator in the Nassau County and Suffolk County District Courts, serve as an Arbitrator for the Nassau County Bar Association Attorney-Client Fee Dispute Resolution Program, serve as a Mediator in Landlord Tenant Disputes in the Nassau County District Court, and am a member of the Corporate and Real Estate Committees of the Nassau County Bar Association.  I currently serve as General Counsel to the Board of Trustees of the Mineola Memorial Library, Mineola, New York and prior to my retention as General Counsel, I was appointed as Library Trustee and thereafter elected as Library Board President.

For the past twenty (20) plus years, I have been a proud and active member of the County Seat Kiwanis Club where I currently sit on the Board of Directors and have been Club President, Club Secretary, and Chairman of countless committees involved in public service fundraising and goodwill community and charitable projects, and for ten (10) years I have volunteered as a Baseball Manager and Softball Coach with the Garden City Athletic Association.
