About Me

The picture above is me as a Captain of a Guide Boat at The Swim Across The Sound a race 15.5 mile across Long Island Sound.  Our team won their division !


 


As in "The Swim" steering a straight course in a Divorce or other Family Case sometimes means taking some turns as the currents change. 


 


As an experienced attorney I have been involved with many people going through difficult times.  While experienced as a trial attorney, I try to use my trial prep to negotiate with the other party.  Except in the most egregious of cases it is better for families to determine their own path than to have the court do it.
