About me

I am a lawyer/mediator with decades of litigation experience in New York courts.  

As a matrimonial attorney, I may be retained in any sort of family law matter ranging from prenuptial agreements, to contested or uncontested divorce, separation, custody, support, protective, and paternity cases.  l may also be retained by a couple as their neutral mediator to help them resolve all the issues necessary to facilitate a separation or divorce.
