I have been helping people in New Jersey and New York resolve their legal problems for twenty three years. During this time, I have learned that informed and involved clients can contribute greatly to the achievement of a successful outcome.
Whether the matter involves family law, divorce, wills, real estate, or bankruptcy, I will carefully examine your options and help you to determine the legal strategy best suited for your needs. Each client and every case will be treated with care, compassion, dedication and excellence.
I have been a solo practitioner for over ten years. Prior to opening my own law office, I worked as a managing attorney at a prestigious law firm in New York City. I also worked for several law firms providing legal services to union members, including members of construction and law enforcement unions, and I have provided representation to an organization assisting victims of domestic violence.
