Before I began my career as a personal injury attorney, I attended SUNY Buffalo on a five-year football scholarship for undergrad and earned recognition as the school’s outstanding student athlete for academic and on-field performance. Following graduation, I was actually recruited by the Buffalo Destroyers to play in the Arena Football League before I made the decision to go back to the University of Buffalo for law school.
After completing my J.D. with honors, my legal career made many stops along the way to Cellino & Barnes, and ultimately The Barnes Firm. I worked with several of the top legal individuals in New York State including former State Senator Hillary Clinton and State Appellate Division Justice Samuel Green. I also formerly worked as legal counsel for insurance companies, which continues to give me tremendous insight into combating their defense strategies as I represent personal injury clients today.
