I have been engaged in the practice of law since 1974 with an emphasis on Bankruptcy, Domestic Relations, Real Estate and Probate.

I am a former President of the Salem Bar Association, former Chairman of the Essex County Bar Association Family Law Council, and a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Property Law Council. I currently lecture on family law and real estate matters for Lorman Education Services and am a guest lecturer at Boston University Graduate School’s American Studies Program on issues relating to law and historic preservation.
