My entire career has been dedicated the practice of criminal law and the rights of victims of crimes and accidents. I have prosecuted or defended virtually every kind of case, many of which included charges that carried extensive time in prison and prolonged driver’s license suspensions. I am passionate about providing personalized, thorough, and effective representation to individuals in crisis.
I have taken hundreds of cases to trial, successfully had cases thrown out on pre-trial motions, and have handled complex investigations, litigation, and appeals on behalf of many clients over the course of my career. These have included drug offenses; property crimes such as theft, shoplifting, burglary and robbery; homicide, sexual assault, and DWI.
My career began working as an intern in the trial unit of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office. I also interned and later served as a designated attorney for the New Jersey Office of the Public Defender. After serving a clerkship in the New Jersey Superior Court – Appellate Division, I entered the private practice of criminal and personal injury law where I have practiced for nearly a decade. I have also been appointed as Municipal Prosecutor in several jurisdictions, including Freehold Township, Howell, and Rumson Borough.
After handling over 1,000 combined criminal, municipal court, and appellate cases, I have gained the experience necessary to defend you against every type of adult or juvenile case. Give my office a call so we can discuss the issues and possible defenses in your case.
**Selection for inclusion to the Super Lawyer listing follows a 4-step selection process which is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field. Step one is the creation of the candidate pool where lawyers enter the candidate pool by being formally nominated by a peer; identified by the research department in the “Star Search” process; or informally nominated. The second step includes the evaluation of the lawyers in the candidate pool. Super Lawyers’ research department evaluates each candidate based on these 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement: verdicts and settlements; transactions; representative clients; experience; honors and awards; special licenses and certifications; position within law firm; bar and or other professional activity; pro bono and community service as a lawyer; scholarly lectures and writings; education and employment background; and other outstanding achievements. These indicators are not treated equally; some have a higher maximum point value than others. The third step in the selection process is to be evaluated by the attorneys peers by practice area. The final selection for the Super Lawyers list is by grouping candidates into four firm-size categories. Those with the highest point totals from each category are selected.
The Rising Star selection process is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process except that: 1) to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for ten years or less; 2) Candidates for Rising Stars do not go through step-three above in the selection process – peer evaluation by practice area.
