Civil and Criminal Appeals in State and Federal Court


I am a graduate of Hamilton College and the University of Denver College of Law and am licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and Colorado. I am a former Special Assistant Attorney General in the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office and chair an annual MCLE seminar at on appellate practice.

Since opening my appellate practice in January 1997, I have handled over a 100 appeals in state and federal court. I have helped my clients with a wide-range of problems including the constitutional freedom of expression, commercial business disputes, insurance defense issues, drunken driving, murder, assault and battery and attempted murder convictions as well as divorce, guardianships and adoptions. I have negotiated early releases from prison, reversed convictions, and won not guilty verdicts at retrial. I have defended many civil judgments and have won 22 of 23 cases as an appellee.
