About me

As a Rochester Divorce Attorney I have handled million-dollar divorce cases and high-profile murder trials throughout New York state courts.  Regardless of the case, I always take the time to care for the individual needs of my clients.

I have more than 10 years of trial experience focused on family law and criminal defense matters. I am also skilled with the analysis and resolution of property division problems in divorce cases of all kinds.
