I grew up in Toms River, New Jersey and attended Toms River High School East, graduating in 1996.  From there I went onto attend college at Montclair State University.  At Montclair I became heavily involved in the Student Government Association, becoming it’s attorney General and then going on to represent the student body on the University’s Board of Trustees.  After college, I moved to Boston Massachusetts to attend New England Law School, where I received the Cali Excellence for the Future Award and was a Staff Associate of the Journal of Civil and Criminal Confinement.  During Law School I interned at the Office of Child Care Services, a State Agency for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and worked as the Assistant to Attorneys E. Melvin Nash in Brookline, Massachusetts and Charles Donoghue in Boston, Massachusetts.

After attending Law School in Boston, I practiced law in Boston for over four years at a small General Litigation Firm, Cellai Law Offices, P.C.  During that time, I was one of a couple of lawyers in the firm who handled a large case load of litigation matters.   I was the first chair on several successful trials which occurred at all levels of the Massachusetts Court System and the United States Bankruptcy Court.  Also during my tenure at Cellai Law I successfully argued two cases before the Massachusetts Appellate Court with the partner of my law firm.   

As I open and maintain my own law firm, it is important to me to give my clients the best legal counsel and knowledge.  I am dedicated to my helping my clients through my work.  I work hard for my clients to give the best legal representation for all their needs. 

I look forward to all your inquiries and being able to assist you in any way that I can.
