About me

In her current legal practice, Ms. Mackenzie handles a wide range of
complex domestic relations matters, involving litigation, negotiation,
and mediation.

Ms. Mackenzie has also been lead counsel in a number of
hotly contested child custody cases. Most recently, she has expanded her
practice to include collaborative divorce. While collaborative divorce
is not an option in all cases, Ms. Mackenzie is pleased to offer this
non-adversarial divorce option for her clients.

In her recent legal practice Ms. Mackenzie has been legal trial
counsel in cases in Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga, Greene,
Schoharie, Washington, Warren, and Columbia counties. In addition, she
has been lead appellate counsel in a number of matters considered by the
third department, which hears appeals from trial courts in northeastern
New York State.
