I am the Chief Trial Counsel for The Barnes Firm’s offices in New York and California. Before I began my career as an attorney, I obtained my B.A. in Political Science from the State University College of New York at Buffalo in 1985. Following that, I studied for one year at the University of San Diego before returning to SUNY Buffalo to complete my J.D. in 1988.
I started out practicing law in 1989, and in the three decades since, I have won many multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of my clients. Many of those legal victories came during my time with Cellino & Barnes, but my record of success has continued through my time with The Barnes Firm. The rights of the accident victims I represent mean a great deal to me, and so I will regularly travel to the New York State Assembly and Senate in Albany to lobby on behalf of my clients past and present.
