For the past twenty years, Stu’s practice has concentrated in the areas of healthcare and labor and employment law stemming mainly from serving as house counsel to a large cardiovascular group with offices in Syracuse and throughout Central New York. At the practice, Stu provided advice and guidance on a wide-range of matters, including physician employment and professional services agreements, office and equipment leases and purchase agreements, human resource and healthcare regulatory matters under HIPAA, Stark, ADA, FMLA and the Fair Labor Standards Act and assisting in the formulation and implementation of corporate policies, such as records retention and prevention of discrimination and sexual harassment at the work place. Stu is also a seasoned litigator with broad experience in federal and state trial, bankruptcy and appellate courts, and administrative agencies. He believes that this combination of transactional and litigation experience gives him a unique perspective which can be employed to best serve clients.
In addition to his work at Hancock Daniel, Stu is a Professor of Criminal Justice and Homeland Security Studies at Cazenovia College located near his home in upstate New York, a civilian instructor in a Police Academy responsible for teaching Constitutional Law and risk management to cadets, and a director on the boards of the Legal Aid Society and Legal Services of Central New York not-for-profit corporations serving indigents within a thirteen-county area.
