About Me

I am an experienced  Family Law attorney accepting cases in  divorce, child custody and visitation, equitable distribution, alimony, child support, domestic violence, DYFS (DCP&P) issues, mediation and other related Family Court issues.  I am especially interested in child custody disputes, high conflict divorce and parental alienation since I am also a Licensed Psychologist in addition to being a family law attorney.  I am a former N.J. Deputy Attorney General who once represented DYFS.  Besides representing clients in family court, I also am available for appellate work in Family Court matters.  I am a Court approved Family Law Mediator and Parent Coordinator. I appear Statewide.
