I am a Certified Family Law Specialist in California. I have exclusively practiced family law in California since my admission to the California bar in 2009. I specialize in complex family law matters including property division, financial issues, domestic violence, child and spousal support, and child custody, both in dissolution and post-judgment matters.
I also prepare and negotiate premarital, postmarital, and separation agreements. I am a New York native and am also licensed to practice law in New York. I received my B.A., Juris Doctorate and Masters Degree in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis.
I understand that each client, each relationship, and each family is unique.
