I am originally from Long Island. After high school I enlisted in the Navy for a four year term. I was educated
in steam theory mechanics, assigned to an aircraft carrier and was honorably discharged. I completed
undergraduate work at the University of California at Berkeley and moved to Colorado in 1973, I graduated
from the University of Colorado School of Law in 1977 and took some time off traveling. I began a practice
with my longtime partner, Rick Lusero and we maintained an office in Longmont for twenty years. After Rick
relocated to Pueblo I remained with my own practice which I currently maintain in Longmont and Boulder.
I have argued cases in the Colorado Supreme Court and the Colorado Court of Appeals. Some of my
practice involves appellate work which I find challenging and rewarding and an exercise which I think makes
me a better trial lawyer.
I have contributed to the community by participating as a board member for the Longmont Housing
Authority and served on the Boulder County Community Corrections Board for 10 years.
I have completed certification by the National Institute of Trial Lawyers and am licensed in all state courts,
US District Court for the State of Colorado, US Bankruptcy Court for the State of Colorado and the 10th
Circuit Court of Appeals.
I belong to the Boulder County Interdisciplinary Committee which was organized to keep open lines of
communication between lawyers and mental health providers who practice in the field of family law.
For 10 years I participated in endurance horse racing throughout the western states and now am content to
share in raising two wonderful grandchildren.
