About me

I am a partner in the law firm of Cooper Levenson and Chair its Health Law Department.  In addition to Health Care, my practice includes tax/estates and business law.  I have served three different stints as "in-house" general counsel for hospitals for several years. I represent Medical Staffs and Hospitals in a variety of issues.  My health care practice complements my tax and estates and business law practice.  My tax and estates practice focuses on estate and charitable planning, estate and trust administration, guardianships, elder law planning, and contested matters.  My business practice includes entity formation, various transactions, nonprofit matters, and entity dissolution.  I have been privileged to serve as General Counsel for the New Jersey Hotel & Lodging Association for over 20 years.  I am responsive and practical and work tirelessly for my clients.
