About Me

Matrimonial and Family Law matters can be some of the most challenging experiences an individual must go through in life.  Unfortunately, the stakes are very high as they often involve matters that will affect the lives of your children for many years to come.  It is for this reason that you must consider a law firm with significant experience in the fields of Matrimonial and Family law.  Equally, due to the complexity of these matters, you must consider a full service law firm, such as ours, which maintains partners practicing in a vast array of legal disciplines such as coporate, real estate, taxes, etc. such that the firm is equipped to handle the numerous ancillary issues that come with Matrimonial and Family Law matters.  When choosing a law firm, It is essential that they have a superior knowledge of the law, an understanding of the many day-to-day demands placed upon a family as they go through this process, coupled with a sensitivity to the fact that resources are better spent on "college funds" than litigation.  Client satisfaction and effective, effecient representation is our paramount concern.  Our firm has spent decades refining our skills in each of these facets and will serve you well.
