About me

I have been practicing family law for 22 years in Philadelphia, Delaware, Montgomery, Chester and Bucks Counties.  I have written numerous articles on a variety of family law topics and have lectured frequently to other lawyers on family law matters.  I have appeared on the television shows Law Journal and Money matters, where I have spoken about many family law related topics.  I live in Delaware County with my husband and three children.
