About me

Judy is Board Certified in Family Law and specializes in divorce, child custody, grandparents' rights, modifications of child custody, interstate child custody, and changes in geographical restrictions or "move away" cases. Judy is equally talented at the negotiating table as well as in the courtroom. A natural litigator, Judy is aggressive as well as assertive, while at the same time is able to negotiate effectively in cases which are more collaborative, or where an agreement can be reached.
