I am a New Yorker, through and through! I attended Baruch College in New York City before going to Brooklyn Law School in Downtown Brooklyn, so you know I am “New York Tough”! I also managed to pick-up those coveted New York Street-Smarts along the way…
Prior to dedicating my career to helping people, I worked for one of the largest motor-vehicle insurance carriers in the country. Having been a part of the inner workings of a major insurance company, I learned exactly what is deemed valuable, or invaluable, in cases and their strategies for defending cases. This experience has helped me become keen to the details that leave insurance companies exposed, and now as a representative at The Barnes Firm, I am fluent in finding the defense’s vulnerabilities.
Over the course of my career, I have led numerous trials on behalf of my clients and taken over a dozen jury verdicts. My trial skills have been noticed by peers and judges alike – I have been hand-picked and received personal invitations from judges to speak at court seminars.
As a husband, a father, and a lifelong New Yorker, my work in my community is as important to me as any other part of my life. Protecting my clients, providing guidance through a difficult time, and fighting for them has been the most fulfilling aspect of my career.
