Matrimonial and Family attorney. Practicing in NYC, Westchester and Long Island.
I am an experienced litigator specializing in the area of matrimonial and family law with over 13 years of experience practicing in the New York City metropolitan area. I have handled hundreds of separations and divorces and am well versed in a wide array of legal matters including custody and visitation, child and spousal support, equitable distribution, enforcement and modification proceedings, pre and post-nuptial agreements and award of counsel and expert fees.
I understand that family disputes can become stressful and overwhelming when they intersect with legal issues. I will take the time to understand your family's unique circumstances and determine your priorities then walk you through each step of the legal process and explain your rights and the legal options available to you.
We will work together to develop strategies to resolve your legal issues as quickly, smoothly, and inexpensively as possible.
