I have been practicing law in New Jersey since 1974. I served as a law clerk in Cape May County.  I have prosecuted in numerous municipal courts in Atlantic and Cape May County.  I am a past president of the Cape May Bar Association and Vice President of Cape Mediation Services.  I have been the Attorney for Sea Isle City, Dennis Township, Somers Point and Buena Vista Township.  I have represented a number of Authorities and am Vice Chairman of the South Jersey Transportation Authority.
