I am a first generation Russian immigrant, a techie, a real estate investor, an entrepreneur and even a bit of a cook. Having emigrated from the Soviet Union in 1989 and having lived in four different countries within that year, I grew up quickly. In fact, I ran my first business in Italy, at the age of 8. More recently, I've been a manager and regional trainer of an automotive chain, and then CEO of an IT company and a financial management company. Then I became a lawyer... My life experiences have certainly helped me understand different mentalities, cultures and points of view, making me an effective advocate for quite a few complex issues... My business experiences have allowed me to offer more than the average commercial lawyer, as I can understand my client's position from a businessman's, rather than a lawyer's, point of view... Since 2008, I've worked as an associate in a boutique firm, ran a solo practice, been managing director of a small 3 attorney firm and then returned to solo practice. My firm now focuses on commercial and real estate matters and is equally split between litigation and transactions. In my spare time, I am highly active with my local Rotary Club, as well as my Rotary District. As of July 1, 2018, I am the President of my Rotary Club, Chair of the IT Committee for the Rotary District, Member of the Rotary District PR Committee, member of the Rotary District Conference Committee and the Conference Registrar. I am also the Rotarian Advisor to the Kings Park High School Interact Club, and am the Attorney Coach of the Ezra Academy High School Mock Trial Team, run as part of the New York State Bar Association's Youth & Citizenship Initiatives. I volunteer my time to sit on three 501(c)(3) non-profit boards, including a domestic violence shelter network called Brighter Tomorrows (Secretary of the Board), a school safety organization known as Safe Halls (President of the Board) and a community improvement charity known as the Commack-Kings Park Charitable Fund (President of the Board). I'm also an avid alpine skier, ice skater, pool volleyball player and swimmer. If there's any time left, I enjoy a good night at the theater and a good roasted duck!
