He was Deputy Bureau Chief of the Bureau of Torts and Civil Rights Legislation in the Nassau County Attorney’s Office, which defended the County Police Department, the Nassau District Attorney’s Office and the Nassau Department of Corrections. He also serves on the Open Space and Parks Advisory Committee for the Nassau County Planning Commission.
