Bio

I am an attorney licensed in the state courts of Rhode Island and New York, as well as the US District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York and the District of Rhode Island. I have also practiced in the US Bankruptcy Court in Massachusetts and I am admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court.

In my younger years, I worked for 25 years as a professional singer/songwriter/entertainer in clubs in New York City, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.

My law practice focused on the specialties of arts & entertainment law, as well as employment law, where I handled many issues including copyright and trademark filings, infringement lawsuits, arts and entertainment contracts and not-for-profit organization filing and governance issues.

I endeavor to teach my students what they will need to know to survive the legal issues of their business life, and hopefully avoid lawsuits in the first place.
