I attended Touro Law School and have worked for MDASR after graduating handling workers’ compensation claims assisting injured workers obtaining the benefits they deserve.

I did not always want to be an attorney. I majored in finance at the University of Miami, however after taking a few business law classes I decided to attend law school.

I like that the workers’ compensation field provides the opportunity to help people who are in need.

Most clients are relying on me to help provide them with a means to live in addition to medical treatment to sustain a normal level of daily living, so the relationship is very important to me and I want to make sure I do everything I can to help them in any way possible.

I would want an attorney who is relatable, who listens, and who will work with me to achieve a common goal.

Skiing, Travelling and anything on the water.

I am involved with Habitat for Humanity. I am also an active member of the Nassau Country Bar Association and New York State Workers’ Compensation Bar Association.
