I am a Sole Practitioner of New Horizons Law. I focus solely on family and marital law. I represent people from all occupations and lifestyles. However, I believe it is my background, which gave me a sense of tolerance, compassion, and empathy, that has made me a better person and attorney.
I was born and raised in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, New York. I had a fondness for airplanes as a child, and eventually studied aeronautics at Brooklyn Technical High School. I left Brooklyn a few days after I turned 18 to join the Air Force where I learned to repair radar equipment on jets, and then satellite communications equipment. In my twelve plus years with the Air Force, I had the pleasure to do some traveling, throughout the United States, Italy, Germany, Turkey, and Greece; and meet some interesting people. I learned the culture of these people, and enjoyed the diversity, not only of the culture of the locality I was placed into, but the diversity offered in the military itself. I left the military in 1993 and moved to Broward County.
My career path remained in the technical area, as I have a very analytical mind. Avionics is aircraft electronics, and is what I did for many years. While working in the aircraft industry, I achieved one of my childhood dreams and learned to fly, soloing on my 35th birthday.
However, in 2000 I decided to study the law. I hung up my shingle in July of 2004 after graduating from Nova Southeastern University in 2003 and have been practicing Family Law since then. A few years later, I returned to Nova Southeastern University, not as a student, but as a teacher. I am an Adjunct Professor in the Children’s and Family Clinic. My practice has since developed. However, I am not a firm with many attorneys. I am a “Sole” Practitioner and I answer to only you, and you work solely with me.
I am proud to say I am a grandfather of seven, and have been married to my wife, Nancy, since 1999. We are a blended family, and I understand the difficulties one experiences when raising their own children and the children of a spouse.
