A major part of my law practice is connected to real estate - (real estate sales, both residential and commercial, property tax appeals, land use (zoning and planning boards) and landlord and tenant law). In addition, we also provide services in the areas of wills and estate administration (probate), municipal court representation (DWI and traffic offenses), income tax and business advisory services. I have found that most people excel at what they enjoy doing, I enjoy these areas of the law the most.
In addition to my law license, I was licensed in New Jersey as both a real estate agent and a certified public accountant. I concentrate my continuing legal education on these areas in order to maintain my expertise. I have over twenty years experience where I represented municipalities as a land use attorney or in property tax appeals. This gives me the unique perspective of "knowing what the other side is thinking" when I represent private clients, as well as having allowed me to forge relationships with my colleagues in these areas.
We also believe in giving back to the community. I am a member of the Loyal Order of Moose, a fomer Board of Education member, served on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club of Lodi and New Jersey Area Council of Boys & Girls Clubs. I have also coached girls softball (local and travelling) as well as girls soccer.
I am also invloved with several emergency services. I am currently the Deputy Emergency Management Coordinator for the Borough of Lodi (formerly a Deputy Coordinator for the Garfield Office of Emergency Management), an Operations Section Chief for the Bergen County Office of Emergency Management and a member of Garfield Fire Department Company 4.
I also own a couple of motorcycles which I enjoy riding as often as possible.
