Attorney Profile

I am a 2004 graduate of Canisius College and a 2008 graduate of the University at Buffalo School of Law in the top 15% of my class.

I have been an attorney in private practice since 2009 and have represented many clients in all fields of personal injury litigation on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants.  While I have represented plaintiffs in many different types of claims including auto accidents and premises liability cases amongst others, I focus primarily on pursuing medical malpractice and nursing home claims and litigation involving doctors, hospitals, nurses, and other health care providers.  I also routinely represent defendants in various cases on behalf of several insurance companies typically in auto accident, premises liability, construction accident and products liability claims.  I have also handled complex insurance coverage matters and commercial litigation involving product and contract disputes.   

I am currently admitted to practice in all New York State Courts and have argued before New York State’s highest court, the Court of Appeals. I am also admitted to practice in Federal and Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of New York.

I am member of the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers, the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the Western New York Trial Lawyers Association, the Erie County Bar Association and the Negligence Committee, and the New York State Bar Association.

Aside from the practice of law, I enjoy spending time with my wife Jenna and our new son Charlie who was born on May
