After college, I returned home and worked as a sports writer for the Valley Courier and Harbor News. I then moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to go to law school at Marquette University. I decided that I wanted to practice law in Connecticut and again returned home. I am admitted to practice law in Connecticut, Wisconsin (inactive), the United States District Court for Connecticut, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
My experience as an attorney and writer has taught me that asking the right questions often contributes to success. I have represented clients on both sides of criminal law, victims and defendants. I am also experienced in civil litigation and appeals. Before starting my own practice years ago, I worked as an associate attorney with Jazlowiecki & Jazlowiecki, a personal injury firm based in Bristol.
When I'm not working, I enjoy biking, cooking, trivia and seeing new places. I make the most of the week of vacation I give myself each year. I bake bread and make pizza and also experiment with different barbecue techniques. Like many lawyers, I read a lot and enjoy reading novels. I also write creatively and aspire to write legal thrillers. Most of my recently writing is in legal briefs and motions which do require creative energy. I am a strong supporter of the First Amendment and think the Civil Right Act of 1964 is the most important piece of legislation ever enacted.
