I am an experienced family law attorney ready to help you with your divorce or family court case.
I have specialized in family and matrimonial law for more than 25 years, representing clients throughout the Capital Region who are facing challenging family-related legal issues. I bring experience, professionalism, and compassion to every client. My experience, in addition to private law practice, includes 10 years as Principal Court Attorney for a serving Family Court judge who also serves as acting justice of a Capital Region County Supreme Court. This experience has provided me with a unique and valuable understanding of the legal process from the perspective of client representation and from working within the court system. My varied professional experience can be especially advantageous for clients facing complex legal matters.
