Besides teaching at Rutgers and Ocean County College, I have been an attorney since 1975 in Ocean County. I am also the Municipal Court Judge in South Toms River and a Judge at Ancora Psychiatric Hospital in Hammonton, New Jersey. In that latter capacity, I determine whether patients who may have been suffering from a mental illness and may have been a threat to themselves or others should be released into various facilities back in the community or remain hospitalized.
As an adjunct professor at Ocean County College since 1990, I initiated a mediation/conflict resolution program and have been teaching that course, as well as a litigation course and an on-line criminal law class. At Rutgers, I teach two courses: Criminology and Law and Society.
