Having been born and raised in North Adams, I understand what it means to be from Berkshire County. I have a vested interest in the area as it has always been home to me and my family. I have also been fortunate in my career to meet and work with many people from Berkshire County, as well as newcomers to the region.

I worked for 17 years in private practice as a solo practitioner. Being a solo practitioner allowed me to forge strong personal relationships with my clients, but did require a great deal of my time to be spent on office matters. I am excited to be a part of Donovan O’Connor & Dodig, LLP, a firm with strong Berkshire County roots. The resources of the firm will permit me to spend more of my time directly on client matters. In addition, having a team of attorneys and staff by my side will ensure that clients always get the best possible representation.
