What makes Farrell Fritz different for you and your career? The collegial and friendly atmosphere mixed with sophisticated work. This is the “Cheers” of law firms for me.
What keeps you passionate about practicing law? I love the “puzzle” aspect of my job. I always try to draft fair and reasoned documents to “solve” the needs of both parties.
What is your greatest career accomplishment to date? Representation of our client – a real estate development and management firm – in a complicated half-billion dollar financing facility, with corporate, real estate and international components. With the skillful assistance of many of my Farrell Fritz colleagues, we were able to close this transaction and provide our client with the best possible outcome.
What is your top source of motivation in life? My life goal is to “first do no harm” and second, to “do some good.” So, as I apply that to my work as an attorney, I always try to protect my client, but to listen to and respect what the other side may have to say. There is usually a middle ground that can work for all parties.
What is your favorite thing to do on Long Island / in New York? Live music. The Beach. Particularly listening to music with loved ones at the beach.
