Sole Practitioner able to give attention to my clients in the "old fashioned" way in an unhurried and professional manner. Sliding Scale Fees. Excellent service.

Firm Overview

Family and matrimonial law firm.

Over 20 years experience handling matrimonial (divorce) and family law (custody, visitation, child support) matters. Having litigated more cases than I can recall, I am a firm believer in negotiating settlements whenever possible. It is much better for people facing divorce or other family law matters to resolve their issues themselves with the help of lawyers (accountants and therapists as necessary) rather than have the Court decide for you.

Attorney for more than 30 years.

Also represent families with health care proxy/ end-of-life issues.

Sole practitioner with more than twenty years experience handling matrimonial and family law matters.
Practice devoted to family/matrimonial matters and residential transactional real estate. A lawyer for more than 35 years. As I run my own practice, I am able to provide individual attention to all my cases. With an eye toward resolution whenever possible, I try to avoid unnecessary and costly litigation. My experience has given me the ability to anticipate issues and draft settlement agreements that are comprehensive and detailed, thus helping to avoid future problems. I take great pride in helping people move on with their lives and do so in an expeditious fashion.
