I am 43 years old and have lived in Avon, Connecticut my entire life. My practice is centered around personal injury and medical malpractice litigation. Competitive sports were the spring board for a career in litigation. I have been a competitive athlete as long as I remember and was the only athlete in the State to earn All State Honors in two sports in 1983: Track and Field and Soccer. I have coached girls soccer for six years, earned a "D" coaching license and earned three State Championships at the youth level, Currently I race for a NASTAR team at Ski Sundown and sponsor local youth teams in New Britian and Berlin and have been a team member/walker and major contributor to the American Breast Cancer Association for the last four years. LAW IS MUCH LIKE SORTS. Success in trial or at the negotiating table takes preparation, desire, commitment and skill. My entire staff of employees exude these attributes. My office recently found a a new home in a beautiful 1890 Victorian in Walnut Hill Park in New Britain. Family: my daughter, Blair, was voted by the Connecticut Girls Soccer Coaches Association to the 2008 All-New England team and is the Pre-Season pick for Hartford Courant Player of the Year for 2009.
