“Listening carefully to the client is the first step in securing a successful outcome.”
Choosing the right lawyer is like choosing the right doctor or financial advisor. Each must have considerable skills at what they do but must also be able to instill trust and confidence for the client.
Here at CLDD&S we have made communication with clients a hallmark of our practice. I have been a criminal prosecutor, house counsel for a major insurance company, a private practitioner, and a long time partner of a law firm specializing in civil litigation for both plaintiffs and defendants. I have tried cases throughout New Jersey for a variety of corporate and individual clients, on legal issues involving personal injuries, contracts and commercial matters and most recently became an arbitrator/mediator with membership in the NJ Association for Professional Mediators. I first served as a Deputy Attorney General for the Division of Criminal Justice as a trial attorney handling multi-defendant, State Grand Jury cases and then became a staff attorney with the house counsel arm of Continental Insurance Company, served as a member of the Monmouth County Tourism Advisory Council and became its chairman in 1981. I am presently a member of the Executive Committee of the New Jersey Civil Trial Bar, a member of the Ocean County District IIIA Ethics Committee, and a trustee of the Ocean County Bar Association. I have passed the requirements to become a R. 1:40 Qualified Mediator and Arbitrator, and now add these areas of alternative dispute resolution to my practice.
No stranger to competition away from the law, I race sailboats competitively and earned distinction as a Princeton footballer on some of its storied teams of the late 60s.
I am a proud member of the Ocean County and New Jersey State Bar Associations, and as well as the American Association for Justice, the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators and have been admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.
