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 was 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.
My practice is focused on intellectual property matters, including trademarks and patents, but also ranges to all forms of general business needs, including contracts, licensing, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements and employment law matters. I am confident that I can bring to bear the full range of real world experience negotiating commercial leases to analyzing law school exam questions about what is patentable or not to your needs at a price point that is fair and manageable.
In my spare time, I am an avid SCUBA diver and I may post pictures from time to time of especially interesting dives. I also play golf, tennis and basketball. I ride motorcycles and collect and (try to) play vintage guitars. I remain committed to culinary excellence, too.
