I draw on more than 33 years of experience representing clients in a wide variety of criminal and civil law cases:

  • Criminal defense — I defend clients against criminal charges ranging from serious felonies, including sex crimes, assaults, Internet crimes including possession of Child Pornography,  drug crimes and allegations of domestic violence. As a Past President of the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, I am involved in the cases that matter statewide.
  • Personal injury — I seek compensation for victims in a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death cases, including those involving serious auto accidents. If you have been injured as a consequence of the negligence of others, contact me for dedicated representation.
  • EDUCATION LAW–I specialize in representing Teachers, Students, and Administrators in all matters relating to Education Law. I have defended students, teachers and administrators in claims involving DCF and Criminal related investigations. I regularly serve as trial Counsel for the Connecticut Education Association (CECA).
  • Labor and employment law for Union Members, Teachers, Students and Administrators — I represent Union members, including members of the Bridgeport City Supervisors Association and other Unions in collective bargaining cases.
  • DUI/DWI — A conviction for DUI can mean jail time, fines, higher insurance premiums and the loss of your driver’s license. Don’t go to court without an aggressive defense. I have been defending alcohol related motor vehicle charges for years and can handle everything for arrest, Department of Motor Vehicles Administrative hearings, interlock devices and all matters DWI related.
