Special Education Advocate and Attorney
I have been a member of the State Bar of California for over 20 years. I grew up on New York and obtained my undergraduate degree at Boston University and Georgetown University Law Center to receive my Juris Doctorate Degree. I have practiced in corporate law, entertainment law, patent and trademark law, data privacy law and hospitality law.
My interest In Special Education law came about when my son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two years old. I spent the next several years as his personal advocate and attorney fighting to make sure that he received the services he needed. This experience made me realize that helping other children with disabilities get the services they needed was the best possible use of my law degree.
On most weekends, I can be found coaching soccer. I’ve been a youth soccer coach for over a decade and have had the honor of coaching three different all-star teams with both of my daughters.
I am a proud member of COPAA.
This determined young man is my son, Nick, running the 2020 LA Marathon. Nick is not only my son, he was my first client. Advocating for Nick at the Regional Center, his many IEPs and the many other bumps in the road is why I’m here today.
