Chair of the firm's Litigation Group, my practice includes jury and non-jury trial preparation and trials with emphasis upon complex matters including Labor and Employment Defense, Commercial Litigation, Criminal Litigation and Civil Rights Litigation. I provide representation for corporate, individual and public clients. I consult with clients during initial stages of contract and business relationships in order to anticipate issues and remedies with a view toward avoiding future litigation. I have appeared in various federal and state courts nationwide. I was trial counsel to the New Jersey Legislative Redistricting Commission assigned to defend a challenge to the legislature redistricting plan created after the 1990 census. I am a Certified Civil and Criminal Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
Prior to joining the firm, from 1984 to 1994, I served as Supervising Deputy Attorney General for the State of New Jersey. During my tenure with the Attorney General, I was responsible for the investigation and trial of organized crime and corruption matters with statewide and national significance, including investigations into allegations of voter suppression in the 1993 gubernatorial election and the "computer gate" investigation involving the infiltration of the New Jersey Assembly Democratic staff's computer system. I also supervised the investigation into the Jersey City Welfare Board, and participated in the prosecution of Philadelphia/Atlantic City crime boss, Nicodemo Scarfo.
Additionally, I worked with the Official Corruption Unit, where I supervised a twenty member staff that included attorneys, State Police detectives and accountants. The Official Corruption Unit investigates and prosecutes allegations of corruption which include bribery attempts made to public officials and allegations of misconduct by state, county and local officials, including judges, elected officials and police officers.
