About me

I have been practicing Family Law for over thirty years from the same location representing  husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and children.


This area of law is an emotionally charged one and I therefore work closely with social workers and parenting coordinators to assist the clients in a personal way with the intention of making the process easier and, hopefully, a growing experience.


An attorney practicing Family Law plays many roles as the client's legal representative - advocate, friend, coach and adviser.  I feel particularly qualified to practice Family Law as I play those roles with compassion and sincerity.


Please contact my office at (718)898-0088 to set up a a consultation for your divorce, custody, or child support matter.
