            1983-1986, JURIST DOCTORATE

            A graduate frm the first class (1986), still going strongI was one of the 250 +students who graduated from CUNY'S first class in 1986. I'm proud of what the law school stands for and what it has accomplished both in the field of law and in my life. It's been now close to thirty years since I have graduated and I'm still passionate about law. With the tools, skills and teaching, I proudly proclaim that I'm still "Fighting the Good Fight...for my clients " This would not have been possible without a law school, who's model then as now, was and is, " Law in the service of Human Needs". Upon graduating, I was appointed an ADA in the District Attorneys office, where I served with the broad view of public service and it's impact in impacting crime and criminal justice. I still practice litigation and manage my own litigation firm. I owe it all to God, my love of law and the vision of the founders of CUNY Law school. I recommend CUNY highly for anyone who believe that that practice of law is about helping people and making the world a better place.
