What do you focus on?

Massachusetts real estate

I represent owners and developers before the Boston Redevelopment Authority and most every other city and state agency in the Commonwealth.


I have extensive experience counseling clients on legislative matters at the federal and state levels. I frequently travel to Washington, D.C., to represent clients and have been named Special Counsel to the Massachusetts House of Representatives with respect to redistricting on several occasions.

Boston history and politics

My political memoir, Turmoil and Transition in Boston, was recently published by Hamilton Books. I also recently co-authored two articles about electoral patterns in Boston for Commonwealth Magazine with James Sutherland, a PhD student at Northeastern.
