I've practiced law since 1975. I was an Assistant District Attorney in Allegheny County, then in private practice for a short time in Pittsburgh. In 1983, I became a prosecutor for the US Dept of Justice and went to Fresno California, then Washington DC, and after that to Phoenix, Arizona. I left the Dept of Justice in 1991, and opened a private practice in southeastern Arizona, which is where I worked until 2006.

That year, I began full-time work abroad directing rule-of-law, good governance, and anti-corruption programs funded by the US and other governments. These years were the most fulfilling of my career, and allowed me to live in some fantastic locations among wonderful people. I lived and worked in Bulgaria, Kosovo, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, and Afghanistan.

I'm back in private practice now, in Tucson, Arizona, concentrating on criminal defense and family law.

I served for 8 years as a Lieutenant in the JAG Corps of the US Navy Reserve and am currently a member and Flotilla Commander of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Many of our classmates knew me to be a photographer during our years at TAHS. I still do photography,and have been been published in many, but mostly very obscure, journals, books, and periodicals). I'm also a a model railroad and military history enthusiast. Above all, I love being married to my wife Terry, and being a dad to my sons, Eric, age 41, and Andy, age 39. I'm also a new grandfather, to Gabriel, who is 17, and Alex, who is 15, both the sons of my lovely new daughter-in-law, Daniela Alexandru, MD.
