Prior to earning my law degree from St. John's Law School in 1993, I was employed as a Mechanical Engineer. After graduating I took a position with a public works contractor as an executive project manager and in-house counsel where I remained until 1999. Since that time I have represented contractors, owners and construction professionals on their projects both in and out of court as well as complex commercial litigation matters.
I believe that my engineering background and prior experience as a project manager is invaluable and an added benefit not shared by many other attorneys in the practice of construction law.
In addition to handling cases in court, I routinely review and negotiate contracts for clients, file and prosecute mechanic's liens and assist clients with everyday contract administration matters and construction claims. Representative clients include public works general contractors and subcontractors, plus contractors and owners in the private sector.
