In New Hampshire, I have a reputation for effectively serving clients with a broad range of needs. Finding the right lawyer is an important step in handling your legal case and you want to work with someone who already has earned that reputation for being a fighter and a leader.
I got my start in the legal field when I attended Boston University for two years, then took a break from formal education to work various jobs, including three years in northern Appalachia, working on legal problems of the rural poor. That experience inspired me to become an attorney and return to my education.
I returned to college at the State University of New York, working as a teamster to finance my education. I graduated with honors and then worked my way through the Franklin Pierce Law Center (now known as the University of New Hampshire Law School), graduating in 1980 with a Juris Doctor degree.
After passing the bar in 1980, I opened up a solo law practice in Concord. A few years later, I began sharing office space with two other lawyers and later formed a partnership. I have been a name partner in several law firms since then, and currently, maintain a solo practice located right next to the Merrimack County Superior Court in Concord.
