About me

I and my firm are experienced in matrimonial matters. I am a graduate of Princeton University, and served in the United States Marine Corps as a Platoon and Company Commander in Vietnam. I have been a member of the New Jersey Bar Assn. for more than 40 years and have specialized in matrimonial law and all of its various facets.

I have served on the Boards of McCarter Theatre, the New Jersey Museum, Princeton Community Housing, Young Audiences, the Waterloo Foundation and Springdale Golf Club.
