Law

I am an actively licensed attorney in Massachusetts. I have years of experience reviewing and drafting all manner of legal communications, from objective summaries of facts or testimony to subjective analyses of credibility and potential liability under governing law. Whether the task is routine professional correspondence with a client, colleague or adversary; analyzing or editing a contract; drafting a settlement demand or offer; or persuading a trial judge or appeals court of the merits of my client's position, I excel at finding the most effective tone and language for the task at hand.

Bar Exam

I graduated BC Law and passed the Massachusetts Bar on my first attempt. After clerking for a Justice of the NH Supreme Court, I have practiced civil trial and appellate litigation for more than 25 years, specializing in complex legal issues and mentoring junior attorneys. Ten years into my practice, I passed the NH Bar on one attempt and with less than a week of study time. I have excelled at high stakes standardized tests my whole life, and have extensive one-on-one and small-group tutoring experience.
