Class of 2007

Corporation Counsel
City of Jersey City Department of Law


Having moved to New Jersey from Montreal Canada, I began law school not knowing a single person. The people of Seton Hall, meaning the staff, faculty, students, and alumni took an interest in me, supported me, and provided me with opportunities to succeed. I took advantage as best I could, and today I'm proud to say that I'm a 2007 graduate working at City of Jersey City Department of Law as a Corporation Counsel.  Prior to joining City of Jersey City, I worked as an associate at McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, LLP ("MDMG").

While attending Seton Hall, I served as a member of the Seton Hall Sports and Entertainment Law Journal and as a Student Bar Association Senator. As an alumnus, I'm a member of the Alumni Council and the Dean's Diversity Council. I'm admitted to practice law in the State of New Jersey, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, and the State of New York. I joined MDMC in 2007, at which time I practiced Commercial Litigation, Municipal Law, Condemnation Law, Construction Litigation, and Bankruptcy. In the fall of 2008 through the summer 2009, I served as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Dennis M. Cavanaugh, U.S.D.J., for the District of New Jersey. I returned to MDMC in the fall of 2009.
