About me

My practice is limited almost exclusively to family law matters, including divorce, child custody, paternity, third party custody, and child support.  I am committed to providing high caliber representation at an affordable cost, using a family-centered approach to problem solving and strong, no-nonsense advocacy.  


I have significant experience working with victims of domestic abuse in proceedings for Orders for Protection, divorce, and child custody.  


My immigration practice is limited to working collaboratively with other immigration attorneys to help undocumented immigrant children obtain the necessary court documents for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status.
