I am a family man, lawyer, and author.
My proudest accomplishment in life is being a father to my two young children. The reason for this is because my dad was not around for me. It’s not that he did not want to be around for me, it’s because he was too sick to be. He was a very good man. He unfortunately developed an addiction to alcohol which killed him.
My mother therefore became a single parent, and after being a stay-at-home mother for many years, she was suddenly forced to find a job and provide for the two of us. She hadn’t worked, or needed to work, in decades. She was now almost 50 years-old and joining the workforce.
My childhood provided me real lessons on the value of hard work. My mother worked her tail off and miraculously was able to sacrifice enough to be able to put me in the best schools. That taught me my work ethic. It also taught me that you do anything to help support your children.
Right after graduating law school I took the leap of opening up my own law practice even though I had no clients, or experience. On day 1 I decided to only handle personal injury cases. Fighting for the rights of good, honest people against insurance companies is what I love to do, and is the sole focus of everyone on our team.
I live on the South Shore and am married to my wonderful wife, Rory. She always supports me and has been my rock from the moment I met her. Together we have an amazing, and curious 9 year-old son named Oliver. Our second child, Alice, is 5 years-old and melts our hearts every single day. We are a tight family, and spend nearly all our free time together.
In my spare time I enjoy coaching my son’s baseball and basketball teams, playing with Barbies and princesses with my daughter, coaching her soccer team, as well as working out and staying in shape so I can keep up with my crazy kids. I also try not to drive my family and neighbors crazy with my horrible drumming skills. My life is full, and I am grateful.
For my office, a core principle for us is to help the community. As I have gotten older I discovered it is so rewarding to give back to the community. That is why I have aligned my office with amazing organizations such as the Greater Boston Food Bank, as well as the Chelsea Collaborative. Each of these community, grassroots organizations helps those in need. At office, myself and the entire team believe that helping the community is our obligation, and plus, it makes us feel so good to roll up our sleeves and help the needy in our community in any way we can.
We also help the community through the publication of a book series I have authored called The Truth Series. This is a collection of free consumer guides I have written that is intended to help injury victims and their families make the very best possible decisions with their personal injury case. Client education is another core value of our company.
Professionally I am humbled to have been named a Massachusetts Super Lawyer multiple times, which is one of the highest honors an attorney can achieve. Less than 5% of attorneys receive this honor.
