I have been a Family and Divorce attorney in New York City committed to providing the highest quality legal services in the most cost-effective and straght forward manner for over thirty years. My goal is to guide my clients through the difficult process of divorce and present a realistic view of the process, potential outcomes and effects on the family. Because of the diversity and number of the cases I have been involved in, I have a realistic perspective on the process. During the initial consultation with each client I explain divorce laws of nNew York State and outline the rights, duties and obligations of the parties, both economic and parental, when appropriate.
I understand the emotional and financial toll dissolution of a marriage and family unit takes on my clients and I am sensitive to these issues. I am also committed to protect my client's rights and get the best settlement I can in each and every case.
I have been selected as “Top Lawyer” in Divorce Law field from 2007 to present by New York Times Super Lawyers Section. I was also recently appointed to the New York City Bar Association Matrimonial Committee as of August 2015.
