My Story

Raised in Rhode Island as the oldest of 5 children.  Attended Providence College and received a degree in history, after which I attended Suffolk University and received a law degree.  Had a 25 year career in the U.S. Marine Corps, retiring in 2006.  Opened my own legal practice in 2007 and began teaching at RWU shortly thereafter.
