I understand many of the concerns and worries that run through the minds of people who face the scary possibility of financial loss. This is why I dedicate my legal practice to helping individuals and families navigate the oftentimes confusing territory that can come with bankruptcy, foreclosure, and persistent debtors.
I make every effort to help my clients understand both their options and the processes needed to get there. My guidance can help my clients make an informed decision about their futures, reach their goals, and protect them from creditor harassment. I believe this makes the difference between an adequate client relationship and a successful one.
My life's journey, education, and legal experience give me the confidence to give my clients the representation that they deserve, no matter the financial situation they face. Every client's situation is different. Only by taking into consideration their unique situation, short- term and long-term goals can you hope to help them find a brighter financial future.
Like many of my clients, my path in life was not straight forward, nor was it easy. Before entering law, I served with the New York Police Department for twenty years. During this colorful and educational experience, I worked on patrol in some of the toughest neighborhoods of New York City. Highlights of my career in law enforcement include time spent working in the 34th Precinct in Washington Heights, the 79th Precinct in Bedford-Stuyvesant, and supervising a Harlem narcotics team.
I had the honor of being awarded twenty four medals for outstanding police work. I retired in 2004 with a rank of Captain and position as Executive Officer (second in command) while at the 112th Precinct in Forest Hills.
My entry into law came while I was still working at the police department. I wanted to take my passion for justice and protection of others further. I made sacrifices and attended law school at night. My hard work and dedication paid off after I graduated from Touro Law School. I was admitted to the Connecticut State Bar in 1997 and the New York Bar in 1998.
After working for a small law firm, I decided to venture on my own, where I would have more flexibility in building a solid relationship with my clients. That is the foundation of my Long Island Bankruptcy firm and an aspect that I am committed to continuing.
