Attorney Profile

For the past 19 years, I have devoted my legal career to litigating on behalf of those who have suffered loss. I beganmy career as an Assistant District Attorney in Bronx County, where for five years I prosecuted cases on behalf of the residents of Bronx County who were the victims of horrific crimes. There, I became an experienced trial attorney, trying dozens of misdemeanor and felony trials to verdict.

Prior to joining Gair Gair Conason Steigman Mackauf Bloom & Rubinowitz, I had the privilege of representing individuals who have had the unfortunate experience of being the victim of medical malpractice or who have suffered serious physical injury in an accident. My advocacy skills and dedication to my clients was recognized in 2013, when I was selected by my peers for inclusion in the Super Lawyers 2013: Rising Stars, an honor reserved for those lawyers who have exhibit excellence in practice and which was published in the Magazine Section of the New York Times. In both 2012 and 2013, I was awarded the Client Distinction Award issued by Martindale-Hubbell, an honor made possible by the clients I served. I received a rating of 4.5 or higher on a scale of 1-5. Less than 1% of the 900,000+ attorneys listed on martindale.com have been awarded this score.

In 2013, I was appointed by the Administrative Judge for Civil Matters-First Judicial Department, as an attorney member of the Medical Malpractice Advisory Committee for the Supreme Court, Civil Branch, New York County. This appointment is reserved for attorneys whom the court considers to be “prominent.” I worked with the Justices who preside in the New York County Medical Malpractice Parts to help the court function as effectively as possible. I am a strong voice for everyday people who have been victims of negligent medical care.

I was also selected to serve a two-year term on the Judiciary Committee of the Association of The Bar of The City of New York, a committee which evaluates judges up for appointment, reappointment, election or reelection on the city, state and federal level and makes recommendations for approval.

I currently sit on the Board of Directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association (NYSTLA).  

I perform all aspects of the litigation of medical malpractice and personal injury cases in New York and New Jersey from inception through, and including, trial. My combination of hard work, dedication, conviction and attention to detail is reflected in everything I do. My passion and commitment to my clients is what makes me a zealous trial attorney. I am privileged to be a member of the Gair Gair Conason team.
