I have more than 17 years of experience in criminal defense and personal injury litigation. When you hire me, you can rest assured that your case is in experienced hands.
As a New Paltz personal injury attorney, I focus my legal practice areas on criminal defense and personal injury. By limiting my practice areas, I am able to stay current on the law in these areas and give my clients the best representation possible.
Aggressive Criminal Defense
I handle many areas of criminal defense, including DWI, traffic, student offenses, drug crimes and shoplifting, in most of the local Hudson Valley Region courts.
- First-offense DWI
- Second and subsequent DWI, usually considered felony DWI

I handle many types of traffic-related legal issues, including:
- Basic traffic violations of all kinds
- Speeding tickets

With The State University of New York (SUNY) and other major colleges and universities in the area, I have represented many students charged with criminal offenses like:

In New York State, you need to defend against criminal charges in the local court where you were charged. I have experience defending clients before many of our local courts, including:
