As your family law attorney, my ultimate goal is to lead you on a pathway to financial and emotional stability.
I have been a practicing attorney since 1997, after graduating from Temple University Beasley School of Law in Pennsylvania. Since then, I have earned a Master of Laws in Taxation, from the Villanova University School of law, which has helped me resolve divorce-related financial matters and property division issues, including cases that require business valuation and cash-flow determinations.
Having worked at Pricewaterhouse Coopers as a tax attorney, my clients choose me as their divorce attorney because of my business experience and extensive tax background, both of which give me a significant advantage in handling the financial aspects of divorce.
My clients typically consist of doctors, lawyers, other professionals, business owners and their spouses. These cases are financially complex and often involve significant assets and income. I have handled cases where the marital estate exceeded $50,000,000.00. My years of experience in handling these types of cases combined with my tax expertise has allowed me to gain an advantage over less sophisticated matrimonial attorneys who do not regularly handle financially sophisticated cases and have not had the benefit of studying personal, corporate, and business tax on an advanced degree basis. It is often the case that I am able to gain an advantage in a case simply because I am able to identify an issue as a result of my background.
Whether you require representation in court or prefer to settle issues through negotiation, I know how to help you secure the assets and you’re entitled to.
