I am an attorney and partner of the law firm Satterlee Stephens Burke and Burke LLP in New York City and head of the firm's sports law practice.  While my practice is diverse, part of my concentration is as a mixed martial arts (MMA) and boxing lawyer. 

I am not only an MMA and boxing attorney, but I am also an avid fight fan and I am a blue belt in jiu jitsu under Marcos Santos.  I have had the honor and privilege of training in Brazil with some of Marcos' first instructors. I also enjoy boxing here in NYC at Mendez and work on my conditioning and boxing with my good friend and trainer Paulo.

I started this blog to cover MMA and boxing legal stories of interest.

Finally, I am the contributing MMA attorney at MMAPayout:  The Business of MMA
