After nearly two decades handling some of the most complex family law cases in New Jersey, I am proud to have built a solid reputation as a legal advocate who is zealous, yet compassionate; unflinching, yet empathetic; and most importantly unwavering in my determination to do what is right for my clients and their families.


I have always fought hard for what I believe is right and just. This instinct serves my clients well. I treat each client as I would any member of my own family. We laugh. We cry. We work together to rebuild lives.


Unfortunately the law doesn’t always seem fair.


What may seem logical and appropriate to the reasonable person isn’t always aligned with what the law dictates. Every divorce is unique. No two are alike—they are like fingerprints. And a minor factor in life circumstances can make an enormous difference in the outcome of a case.


That’s why it’ is essential to be represented by a legal professional who has not only knows the law but also looks at the big picture for you and your family’s needs and goals. You and your attorney must be able to work closely together to craft a strategic plan that will ensure the most positive outcome for you and your family.


The unknown can be a frightening place, so I have designed this site in hopes it will serve as a valuable resource for those who are looking to gather reliable information and educate themselves as they navigate each phase of their family law issue. Whether it be a prenuptial agreement for yourself or your child; a divorce; mediation; a post-divorce issue such as changes to support or custody; contribution to college expenses; domestic violence; distribution of assets; executive compensation and benefits; grandparent visitation; palimony; or appeals, I am here to guide you through what may be a personally challenging time.


So, let’s connect when you are ready. Together, we can make a plan to get you to a happier and healthier place, so that you can embrace the next chapter in your life.
