About Me

Trial Practice beginning in law school through my career as a Prosecutor and continuing in my own practice that I run with my husband, Anthony C. DiPaolo. My courtroom skills allow me the ability to cross over into many practice areas including but not limited to criminal, matrimonial, family and personal injury law. Our firm also specializes in Wills, Trusts and Estates as well as Real Estate. I have appeared on 48 hours Hard Evidence on CBS and American Greed on CNBC regarding my role as a Prosecutor of a Bank Robbing former stock broker. Including the practice of law, I am currently an Adjunct Professor of Criminal Justice at Nassau Community College, the third largest college in New York State.
