  • Profile

I was born and raised on Long Island, New York. I am married and have 2 beautiful children who always keep me on my toes.

I graduated from Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center at Touro College in 2003 and practiced law in New York for over 14 years, 12 of which concentrated in Family Law. While practicing family law in New York, I represented clients with issues involving divorce and/or separation, domestic partnerships, custody, support, domestic violence, paternity, and many other family situations.

I moved to North Carolina in January 2018 in search of a better quality of life for my family. I have settled into life in the Carolinas and look forward to being able to help families move forward from difficult situations.

Family law clients are often faced with a variety of emotional situations. My extensive experience allows me to bring a unique perspective to each case that I work on. I specialize in Collaborative Divorce. Ultimately, my goal is to be a calm, helpful, and supportive advocate for my clients.
