Personalized attention to anybody who reaches out for help — the bottom line of my professional legal career.
I received excellent experience working as a judicial law clerk in New Jersey Superior Court, and then as an associate, at Keefe Bartels LLC — New Jersey law firm. As a litigator, I participated in many successful settlements and represented clients in criminal and civil proceedings throughout New Jersey. My articles on diverse legal and business topics were published in various newspapers and magazines — both in Russian and English languages.
As a first-generation immigrant to the United States, I fully understand the needs and difficulties of various immigrant communities. I successfully graduated from law schools both in the United States (with honors) and abroad (Belarus) — which allows me to look at your case at a unique, personalized angle.
