Meet the Attorney (Bio)

I have been an attorney for more than 36 years. I was admitted to practice in Massachusetts in 1977. I have been a sole practitioner the entire time. I have also served in the United States Army and Army Reserve for more than 26 years prior to my retirement. My military service included service in Vietnam during the period 1969-1970 as a helicopter pilot. Among my awards from Vietnam are a Distinguished Flying Cross and Bronze Star. I received my undergraduate degree from Pennsylvania State University and my law degree from Boston University. I have been an active member of the Gloucester community as a member of the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 74, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1624, AMVETS Post 32, United Veterans Council of Gloucester, Gloucester Rotary Club and Magnolia Historical Society, Inc. I have provided Pro Bono legal services to a number of civic and community organizations in Gloucester throughout my career.
