About me

My area of emphasis, with a multi-county focus in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, is family law, including divorce, custody, support, prenuptial agreements, partnership and dissolution agreements, and protection from abuse/domestic violence.


While I have extensive trial experience and have always felt at home in the courtroom, I also embrace alternate dispute resolution in family law. I do not hesitate to advocate a client's consideration of a collaborative law or a mediation approach to his or her family disputes whenever possible. I currently serve as Co-President of the Collaborative Law Professionals of Southeastern Pennsylvania, a professional network of specially trained and experienced attorneys, financial specialists, and mental health professionals specialists who are committed to helping clients find a peaceful way to resolve their family law conflicts.
