Professional Experience and Commitment
Before relocating to New York, he spent several years working in the estate and public benefits planning arena in southwest Florida. This experience, combined with his professional Floridian connections, allow him to offer a unique snowbird planning practice for those who have assets in both New York and Florida, and are faced with estate and/or long term care planning issues.
As a dual US/UK citizen and British expatriate, he is committed to assisting UK clients with sometimes-complicated federal UK/US issues.

He has also contributed to local United States publications on elder law issues, such as Medicaid and estate planning, in planning for the British expatriate.
A service ethic predicated on life experience and empathy
“I feel that every client deserves courageous and compassionate representation. This goes far beyond even the best law school education or practice in the most prestigious firms, but must be based in one’s own experience and ethics, and practiced on deep-rooted, personal level.”
“As the only hearing person raised by a deaf family, I have personally witnessed a lifetime of disability issues. I am grateful that my abilities, including fluency in sign language, allowed me to advocate for my family from an early age. My role has ranged from placing simple telephone calls on behalf of family members to appealing the denial of benefits based on flawed governmental decisions. These experiences have given me understanding, compassion and a passion for justice that serves me, and my clients, every day.”
