I always knew I would be an attorney. My uncle was a prosecutor and a successful defense attorney and I worshiped him, so why not do what he does? I graduated Cum Laude from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1998. I started Seton Hall University School of Law at Newark, New Jersey the fall of that same year, part time. Also that year I got a full time job at a law firm in Elizabeth, New Jersey from which it was an easy 15 minute commute to my night classes Monday through Thursday to law school for four years. I graduated Seton Hall in 2002 and immediately hung my shingles. I never worked for anyone as a practicing attorney. I did everything an attorney does at the firm I worked at while attending law school for four years, except of course represent clients in court although I accompanied the attorneys I worked for plenty of times on the cases I worked on, filed motions, briefs, etc... When I got my license to practice, BOOM, I went out on my own right away. I was 26 years old. My four years working and studying gave me the confidence and knowledge to take such a leap of faith at such a young age. I am still working for myself as a practicing attorney to this day representing clients in court charged with various criminal, drunk driving and traffic offenses. At this point of my career I am a Certified Municipal Court Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey.
