I have lived and worked in Westwood for more than 15 years. During that time, I’ve actively tried to be a good neighbor, community leader, and lawyer. I do this because I genuinely enjoy working with others and finding ways to solve problems that affect us all.

My Approach

A lot of the people that come to me for help are surprised to discover how easy it is to talk to me about their issues. I am a professional, and I know a lot about the law, but that doesn’t stop me from being a regular guy who enjoys getting to know his clients. I find that this relaxed approach helps my clients feel more comfortable. As a result, we’re able to speak more openly and accomplish more while working together.

For example, sometimes when an injured worker reaches out to me, they assume that they’re going to have to pay me a lot of money just to get answers to their questions. But that’s not how I do things. I don’t charge my clients anything upfront for my services, and I’ll even tell them when I see a way for them to avoid unnecessary stress or expenses. The reason I do things this way is because my first priority is helping the person, not taking their money.

I’ve worked hard to improve the lives of the people around me. I’d like to do the same for you.

Community Involvement

Outside of my legal work, I like to do what I can to improve my community. This interest has led me to volunteer with many local organizations over the years and to run for local government. In 2014 and 2017, I was elected by my community to serve as a Westwood Selectman. In that role, I use the same approach with my neighbors as I have always done with my legal clients. I listen to each person’s concerns and ideas carefully, I research the pros and cons of each action we could take, and I encourage people to work with me in order to reach the best result.

Through our combined efforts as a community, we have been able to do so much for Westwood since 2014, including build a new fire station, build a new police station, and begin fixing rundown streets. I am very proud of all that we have done, and I am excited to see what more we will accomplish in the years to come.

If You Need Legal Advice

To any injured or disabled workers who are feeling lost or frustrated by the legal system, I invite you to contact me for help. I cannot guarantee that your problem will disappear after we talk, but I think that I can help you get the support and direction you need to find a solution.
