I have known since I was a young man that I wanted to help people who have been injured through no fault of their own.  It is an honor and a privilege to represent the men and women of Western New York in their personal injury and Workers Compensation cases.  I believe it is my sacred duty to out-prepare and out-work the other side to make sure my clients get the best possible result.


I graduated from the Georgetown University Law Center near the top of my class.  During law school I worked as a litigation associate in the large and internationally recognized firm of Arias & Munoz in San Jose, Costa Rica, where I gained experience handling all kinds of different cases in English and Spanish.  Following law school, I returned to Buffalo where I joined the firm founded by my grandfather.  We have been in the business of representing injured Western New Yorkers for over 75 years and know all types of injury cases, inside and out.


I am admitted in the State of New York and the United States District Court, Western District of New York.  Since beginning my practice, I have collected millions of dollars for my clients.  Some of my notable results include: Top 50 motor vehicle accident verdict in the State of New York (2017), Top 100 Personal Injury Verdict in the State of New York – Construction Site Accident (2017), and Top 10 Personal Injury Settlement in the State of New York (2019).  For these results, and many others, I have been recognized as one of the Top 40 Under 40 Civil Plaintiff’s Trial Lawyers in New York.
