About Me

A graduate of Georgetown University and Seton Hall Law School, I have practiced law for more than 24 years. After serving 10 years with Morris County Prosecutor's Office, as juvenile chief assistant prosecutor in their Family Court squad, and thereafter as a NJ  Deputy Attorney General , I opened my law offices in 2004. My practice focuses primarily on juvenile, domestic violence, municipal court, guardianship and Division of Child Protection & Permanency (formerly DYFS) matters.


 


In 2012, in response to clients' requests for continuing guidance after resolving their legal issues, I founded Shifting Gears Coaching  In my coaching practice I provides support, strategies and encouragement on work, family and relationship balance. (www.shiftinggearscoaching.com)
