Licensed in New York, I have extensive experience in civil litigation, successfully litigating major cases in a wide variety of fields, including premises liability, labor, contract, insurance and assault cases. I’ve also served as counsel to corporate boards and in Congress. I believe deeply in the promise that the burgeoning renewable energy industry holds in addressing climate change.
Upon graduation from Cornell Law School, I served as Legislative Counsel for a Democratic Member of Congress representing a district encompassing both the Niagara Falls Storage FUSRAP Site Vicinity Properties (including Linde/Praxair) and Superfund sites (including Love Canal). In Washington, I assisted the Member in negotiating with the DOE regarding the Linde FUSRAP site remediation, which ultimately led to a complete remediation of the site by the US Army Corps of Engineers. I also handled national defense, judiciary and other environmental issues.
After leaving Washington, I litigated cases to successful civil litigation, co-founded Western New York’s first progressive talk radio station and worked on various political campaigns from the town to the federal level. In 2016, I served on the Clinton voter protection and document review legal teams. All along, I’ve been an active member of my community, coaching soccer and baseball.
Recently, I have consulted nonprofits, was appointed to serve on the Barrington Economic Development Committee and launched a campaign to run for Barrington Town Council with the endorsements of NOW-RI, The Young Democrats of Rhode Island and The Barrington Town Democratic Committee. I also was involved in the successful local effort to ensure that the LGBTQ+ Pride Flag will be raised above our Town Hall and local schools every June.
I will bring sophisticated advocacy skills, strategic legal analysis, and political experience to any organization. I would note that I am a member of the New York Bar Association and would be eligible to register as in-house counsel under Massachusetts, Rhode Island or Connecticut law.
I live in Barrington, Rhode Island with my wife and children, where I enjoy the beaches, playing sports with my kids, reading and exercise.
