I am a business entrepreneur with twenty years experience developing and running a successful delicatessen, restaurant, and catering business, prior to pursuing the practice of law. I returned to law school as the result of a suggestion from my wife and obtained my degree, earning the Philip Kravitz Memorial Prize for the No. 1 ranking among the part-time program. I also earned the ABA/BNA Award for Excellence in Intellectual Property and worked as a student associate in the Rutgers Community Law Clinic. I remain involved in the Clinic by developing and conducting classroom exercises with real world examples for Professor John Kettle. I also taught as an adjunct professor at the New School – Parsons School of Design. Most recently, I passed the Florida Bar and am now licensed to practice law in the state of Florida and have moved my main office to Tampa.
