I have always had a passion for the law, so much so that it’s hard to recall when it began. My father and uncle maintained their own law firm, which I grew up around, in Buffalo, New York. After graduating from law school, I practiced under them—my first and best mentors.

I joined Brown | Gould | Kiely, LLP in November 2010 and prior to then, practiced civil litigation in the D.C. area. With more than fifteen years of litigation experience, I strike a balance between representing commercial litigation clients and people who have been injured. Having previously litigated personal injury from the defense perspective, I have an insider’s view of how cases are assessed, which I am able to use to our clients’ advantage.

Brown | Gould | Kiely’s integrity and devotion to our clients above all else is what initially drew me to the firm. My colleagues are thoughtful and hardworking, with a strong sense of fairness, and I am proud to be a member of this team.

I am licensed in the federal and state courts of Maryland, New York, and the District of Columbia, where I reside with my family. In my spare time, I try to improve my status as a perpetually fledgling glass blower.
