A native New Yorker, Clyde grew up on Long Island. Tired of the cold weather, Clyde decided to attend law school in Miami. After a couple of years, Clyde realized he missed living in a city that had four seasons; however, he was conflicted about returning to New York, as he did not miss the traffic. Clyde compromised on Denver, where he eventually found an interest in Family Law and has helped many clients through a difficult and uncertain period of their lives.
- Clyde lived in Ningbo, China for two years, where he studied Mandarin Chinese.
- Clyde is an avid boxing fan.
- Clyde prefers two wheels instead of four, and can be found riding his motorcycles whenever he can.
Prior to attending law school, Clyde worked as a litigation paralegal for Animal Rights Attorney Richard Rosenthal. Together they represented dogs who were deemed dangerous and scheduled to be euthanized by local towns. Using state pet trust statutes, they were able to gain legal standing to represent the dog, rather than the original owner. Representing the dog rather than the owner made many of the local towns more willing to settle their cases as the towns did not have to fear the dog being returned to an often irresponsible owner.
Clyde was awarded a Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law and an L.L.M. in Taxation from the University of Denver Graduate Tax Program. Clyde was awarded a Bachelor of Art in Comparative Literature from Queens College.
A common failing among family law attorneys is that they do not spend enough time with their clients going over the facts. It is the attorney’s job to comprehend the client’s struggles and convey those struggles to the court in a clear and concise manner. An attorney is an advocate for your story, and you need an attorney who is well versed in the facts to tell the story.
