Issues of divorce, custody and child support are complex and often tumultuous for the parties involved. For me, this is the challenge and the reward of Family Law. I help clients negotiate favorable outcomes and minimize their stress as much as possible. I am a trustworthy, sensitive and effective advocate for clients who are often facing the most difficult times in their lives.

Area(s) of Practice: I focus my practice on family and matrimonial law. This includes divorces and post-divorce matters, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, child custody litigation and child support litigation. I serve on the "Attorneys for Children" panel for the Appellate Division, Fourth Department, representing children in both Supreme and Family Court cases. I practice in Monroe County and all surrounding counties in Supreme Court and Family Court.

Collaborative Divorce gives the parties the option of sitting together with their attorneys to discuss the issues at hand in a collaborative way. The clients are able to be hands-on throughout the process, and have the opportunity to fashion a settlement that will best fit their family's needs. Divorce should not be "one size fits all" and I believe that the collaborative process is an effective process for divorcing couples and families to effectively work through the challenge of a divorce. You also get the benefit of legal counsel representing your interests alone rather than a neutral mediator that you would find in a mediated divorce. Collaborative Divorce Law truly gives you the best of all worlds- a tireless and trusted attorney advocate by your side, but also the opportunity to speak openly with your spouse to negotiate divorce issues in a collaborative way.
