I am Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney, which is a special designation afforded to certain attorneys only after acceptance of a lengthy and rigourous application and testing process by the Supreme Court of New Jersey; I practice exclusively in the area of matrimonial and family law. My practice includes all aspectss of family law, including but not limited to issues of custody, child support, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution, enforcement of prior court orders, non-dissolution matters, and domestic violence.
