About me

I am a partner with Laterra & Hodge, LLC, a family law boutique firm  in Hackensack, New Jersey. I am a Certified Matrimonial Trial Attorney, a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, and a Certified Divorce Mediator.


I am also a member of the Christian Legal Society, and my spirtual life is very important to me. I try to work my cases in a manner that is most pleasing to God, which means a focus on integrity, diplomacy, empathy, and compassion.


I live in Fair Lawn, New Jersey with my wife Jeanie and two young children, Sebastian and Cameron, and attend Cornerstone Christian Church in Wyckoff, New Jersey.
