I have always wanted to be an attorney, to ensure justice is done. I used to be a prosecutor. Under the Third Year Practice Act, I worked in the Fulton County District Attorney's Office and was responsible for clearing out the backlog of cases in the Crimes Against Women and Children division by drawing up charges and presenting them to the Grand Jury. The cases involved child molestation, cruelty to children, statutory rape, rape and aggravated sodomy. I also sat second chair in two murder cases.
When I was an Assistant District Attorney in Massachusetts, I prosecuted felony cases and misdemeanor cases, many involving serious traffic violations such as drunk driving, driving while suspended, as well as drug felonies, and domestic violence cases. I often took these cases to trial.
After my Law Enforcement Career, I have defended the Constitutional rights of persons charged with criminal defenses. I understand that good people are sometimes put in bad situations. I thoroughly believe that Justice often needs to be tempered with mercy. I have been very successful in helping people accused of minor and serious crimes proceed with their lives, and thrive in society. I am not afraid to take cases to trial, and fight aggressively for my clients.
I am Ivy League educated and won a full scholarship to law school. I have also won awards for my volunteer work with victims of domestic violence and for my trial skills. For reference, here is a recap of my education:
Pace Academy (1994), Honors Curriculum
Hebrew University in Jerusalem (1996-97), Honors Certificate
Princeton (1998), BA in Near Eastern Studies
Universiteiet Utrecht (Fall 2000), International Public Law

I am an active member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, and an associate member of Central United Methodist Church.
If I can be of assistance to your family for a probation violation, a bond hearing, traffic matters including DUI(s), misdemeanors or felonies, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I regularly work with and have compassion for individuals who encounter the criminal justice system because of substance abuse, who are seeking and living a life of recovery.
