I joined Cellino & Barnes because I wanted to be part of a team that fights for people who are injured as a result of someone else's negligence. I pride myself on putting forth the hard work and dedication necessary to be the best.
I have learned through athletics and through academics that hard work and tenacity often garnish a just reward. I was a 5 year football scholarship award winner at the University at Buffalo. I was also recognized as UB's outstanding student athlete for athletic prowess, academic excellence and sportsmanship.
Due to my work ethic and dedication to athletics and academics, I was recruited to play in the Arena Football League for the Buffalo Destroyers and was accepted into the University at Buffalo School of Law.
I have had the opportunity to work with some of the top legal individuals in New York State including then New York State Senator, Hillary Clinton, and New York State Appellate Division Justice, Samuel Green . I graduated from the University at Buffalo School of Law with honors.
My litigation experience includes arbitrations, jury trials and appellate practice. I have worked as legal counsel representing insurance companies. I understand their approach to a case and how they might attack a plaintiff. This is powerful experience that I use to my clients benefit as I fight for them. Individuals who suffer a personal injury should not fall victim to the insurance industry. My clients will not be strong armed into settling for less than what their case is worth. I will make a difference for you.
At Cellino & Barnes, we have the resources and experience to take on the insurance industry. Our team of trial lawyers are dedicated to your case. Through hard work and dedication we are able to try to obtain the best possible result for you.
