I am excited to run for the position of Town Justice. While serving as an Assistant District Attorney in Westchester, I appeared in the Pound Ridge Town Court regularly and became intimately familiar with how important a well-functioning local court is to the health of a community. Given my background training and commitment to Pound Ridge, I would welcome your support and the opportunity to continue my service to our town.

I have been a practicing attorney for 20 years. My first 10 years of practice were spent at a large international law firm. I was a law school professor for 4 years, in solo private practice, and am now general counsel of a renewable energy company funded by a large private equity firm. I grew up and went to school in Pound Ridge and moved home 19 years ago. I know the town, I am an even keeled and objective person, I actively volunteer and want your support to help serve as town justice.
