I am passionate about helping clients resolve their family law issues as quickly and painlessly as possible. If you need or someone you know needs help with adoption, custody, divorce, name change, protection from abuse or support issues in either Philadelphia or surrounding Pennsylvania counties – or Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties in New Jersey – I’m here either as an advocate, mediation coach, collaborative lawyer or parenting coordinator. I co-chair the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Collaborative Law Committee and the Philadelphia Bar Association's Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Committee. I have been honored as a Pennsylvania Best Lawyer® and Super Lawyer® and named to the First Judicial District’s Pro Bono Roll of Honor for exemplary pro bono work. I always enjoy meeting and working with other collaborative professionals through this organization.
