What do you do now and what are you planning for the future?:I am a construction attorney. I love what I do and plan to grow my practice by providing top-quality service.

How do you unwind from a busy day?:I enjoy spending time with my fantastic wife and two rowdy and loveable boys, preferably while watching a Mets game.

Favorite book or author: Jensen on the Mechanics’ Lien Law.  Sadly, not a lot of time for pleasure reading in my life lately.

Rules to live by in business: 1) Put everything in writing, even if it is a simple email; 2) Not all attorneys are created equal. It is important to hire a lawyer who truly understands your industry, especially if you are in the construction business.
