Attorney Profile

I moved back to Rochester in 2003 to join my family’s law firm started by my grandfather over 75 years ago. I have focused my practice in personal injury litigation including motor vehicle negligence, premises liability, construction-related accidents, and medical malpractice.

Prior to joining Morris & Morris Attorneys in 2003, I practiced for eight years in Washington D.C. as an attorney at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering (now Wilmer, Cutler, Pickering, Hale and Dorr LLP) representing companies and individuals under investigation, involved in litigation or involved in international transactions and alliances. I also served the federal government as Senior Counsel in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement and as Special Counsel to the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. I participated in an investigation of the day trading industry and its practices and testified before a U.S. Senate subcommittee regarding the findings of the investigation.

I earned my undergraduate degree from Syracuse University and my law degree with High Honors, from George Washington University, where I was a member of the George Washington Law Review and graduated Order of the Coif.

I am a member of the Bars of New York State and the District of Columbia. I am also a member of the New York State Bar Association, Monroe County Bar Association, New York State Trial Lawyers Association and New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers. I was honored to be appointed by the Appellate Division, Fourth Department, to serve on the Committee on Character and Fitness for the 7th Judicial District; the committee evaluates the character and fitness of applicants to the bar before they can be admitted. I recently joined the Board of Directors for the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers and have also served for many years as a Board Member for the non-profit organization Medical Motor Service.
