I have been working closely with individuals and families throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania, including Montgomery, Bucks, Chester and Philadelphia counties. I have always counseled clients to remain committed to finding common ground and to working through issues without the need for court intervention. Collaborative law allows parties to feel confident and capable during negotiations, because each person is supported by competent legal counsel. Collaborative practice allows for a holistic approach to the dissolution of a relationship, taking into consideration the needs and goals of all involved, including children and extended families. I have also been an ally for the LGBTQ community for the past 25 years. A few years ago, my experience with and commitment to the LGBTQ community was recognized by having been invited to be a member of the Family Law Institute of the National LGBT Bar Association.
