About Me

I came to elder law out of an interest in health care policy. I was involved in a documentary entitled "Can't Afford to Grow Old" and then went to work for AARP shortly after college. 


My special needs practice developed out of personal experience.  My son has ADHD and ASD (and lots of other abbreviations as well!) After fighting with the school district on my own, I decided to add special needs advocacy to my practice.


Besides my law practice, I am involved in community service work related to Jewish education, special needs, seniors and the local Jewish community.
