I have ten years experience in civil, criminal, and municipal court litigation, as well as real estate, including landlord/tenant matters. Before I was a lawyer, I was a Realtor. I have great practical experience in residential and commercial transactions, landlord-tenant transactions, real-property litigation, and contracts transactions and litigation. I take great pride in my creative, personal service to ordinary people who need legal assistance. Most people don't have a budget for legal services. When something comes up, it's often a hardship to hire an attorney. I recognize that and try to help people in a way that they can afford. One of my mentors encouraged me to have what he referred to as a "vanity of perfection." It's a commitment to work hard to find solutions to a client's issues, and never give up until there's no stone unturned and no argument left to be made.

In New Jersey, driving while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol is a traffic violation, not a criminal offense. Unfortunately, the penalties are still serious, and there is no "plea bargaining" for driving whilel intoxicated offenses under New Jersey law. A conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can EASILY result in state monitoring, license suspension, jail time, or worse.
