About Me

My staff and I are passionate about the work that we do and the level of work that we put out.  We are dedicated professionals who care about our clients, and their children.


We are actively involved in the drafting of new laws and in their implementation.


I, personally, have many outside interests about which I am also passionate; my family, my horses, and, of course, the New York Yankees.
