Huntington Bankruptcy Lawyer

Overview

Like many people, my path in life has not been straightforward. Before entering the practice of law, I served with the New York City Police Department for twenty years. I worked on patrol in some of the toughest neighborhoods in New York City, including the 34th Precinct in Washington Heights, and the 79th Precinct in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

As a Sergeant, I was assigned to the 6th Precinct in Greenwich Village, in addition to supervising narcotics teams in Harlem...

Like many people, my path in life has not been straightforward. Before entering the practice of law, I served with the New York City Police Department for twenty years. I worked on patrol in some of the toughest neighborhoods in New York City, including the 34th Precinct in Washington Heights, and the 79th Precinct in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

As a Sergeant, I was assigned to the 6th Precinct in Greenwich Village, in addition to supervising narcotics teams in Harlem. As a Lieutenant, I was assigned to the 109th Precinct in Flushing as the Operations Coordinator. I retired in 2004 with the rank of Captain, and at the time held the position of Executive Officer (second in command) of the 112th Precinct in Forest Hills. During my police career, I had the honor of being awarded twenty-four medals for outstanding police work.

In my twenty years in the NYPD, I learned the values of integrity and respect for tradition; the importance of maintaining the highest possible standards of ethics and professionalism; to never take anything for granted; and to always be prepared for the worst.

While still working in the police department, I decided to take my passion for the law even further. I made sacrifices and attended law school at night, graduating from Touro Law School in 1997. I was admitted to the Connecticut State Bar in 1997 and the New York Bar in 1998.

After working for a small law firm, I decided to venture out on my own, where I could build a more solid relationship with my clients. I practice in the areas of bankruptcy; debts and judgments; credit reporting violations; and probate/estate administration, because of the professional satisfaction that I receive from helping people through difficult times in their lives. That is the foundation of my law firm, which I remain committed to every day.

I could not have achieved my goals in life without the support of my wife Melissa. She is truly a remarkable person, and I am so proud of what she has accomplished as the president and founder of Toys of Hope, a non-profit children's charity.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
