My law practice concentrates on employment law and business litigation. I regularly defend employers from discrimination, harassment, retaliation and wage and hour complaints; advocate for departing executives in the negotiation of severance agreements, in the defense of claimed violations of non-competition and nondisclosure agreements, and in the pursuit of wage claims on their behalf, counsel employers on hiring, firing and classification decisions; draft employee policies, handbooks, and contracts on behalf of employers; and represent businesses in a wide-range of business and commercial litigation.
I am a 1989 graduate of Boston College where I majored in history. I graduated from Suffolk University Law School in 1993 near the top of my class and was an editor for the Suffolk University Law Review. Following graduation, I served a one-year judicial clerkship for Associate Justice Joseph R. Nolan of Massachusetts’ highest court, the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, during which I assisted Justice Nolan in drafting court opinions.
I gained extensive employment and business litigation experience as an associate at two mid-sized Boston law firms and have represented a wide range of businesses and individuals in varied and complex litigation.
I also served for several years as an Assistant District Attorney for Norfolk County. As an Assistant District Attorney, I gained invaluable experience conducting many jury trials and jury-waived trials. While a prosecutor, I also conducted numerous appeals before the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Appeals Court.
Since 1998, I have been a co-author of a legal treatise, Federal Civil Practice, which is part of the "Massachusetts Practice Series" published by Thomson Reuters. It was first published in 1998, with a new edition published in 2008, and with pocket-part updates published every year. The book focuses on civil practice and procedure in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
I have been a member of the Massachusetts bar since 1993 and the bars of the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts and the First Circuit Court of Appeals since 1994.
I live on the South Shore with my wife and three children.
