About me

With over twenty years of experience in family law, divorce, domestic violence, and matrimonial appeals, I continue to strive for excellence in my specialty practice.  Superior and personalized attention to detail and client service is always my priority. Over the years, I have brought hundreds of matters to conclusion.  I work with my clients to bring them a favorable result.  Sometimes, that can only be accomplished by bringing a matter to trial.  I am a skilled negotiator and the vast majority of our matters are concluded by way of a settlement.  We pay careful attention to detail, and our clients can be assured that no stone will be left unturned.  The dissolution of a marriage and consequent support and distribution of assets and liabilities are important decisions that we take very seriously.  I am a seasoned litigator and never shy away from litigation, however, I am also a trained Mediator, Parent Coordinator, and negotiator.  We welcome high asset cases, cases involving business valuations, forensic accounting services, high conflict custody and parenting time issues, domestic violence issues, child support, alimony, and cases involving personal injury in the marital context.
