How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?
Although, I was initially reluctant to open a law firm in Florida, I received encouragement from members of the public. Eventually I began to build this practice, first and foremost, on the basis of years of experience representing contentious litigants in various fields of law. When I moved to Florida, from the North East, I recognized a serious need for a Family Law Attorney who practiced Therapeutic Justice. Therapeutic Justice, emphasizes respect for the present and future needs of the client and his or her family. It accomplished this by applying a format that incorporates every necessary element of zealous legal representation. Steadily, the demand for my particular skills increased, and the number of satisfied clients grew, as well.

I was raised in Queens, and received my Bachelors of Arts Degree from Sarah Lawrence College, in Westchester County, New York. I received my Juris Doctorate Degree at Howard University School of Law, in Washington, D.C. As a Law Student, I Clerked with the Division of Administrative Law Judges researching and drafting opinions. I also served as a Legislative Intern for the Congressional House Ways and Means Committee, where I submitted a dossier on the Tax Reform Act. After graduation, I was appointed as a Field Attorney for the Federal Government and thereafter, argued cases in the Supreme Court and represented federal appeals, both in New York.
When my family relocated to Florida, among other commitments to public service, I was appointed, for several terms, to the Board of Trustees of what is now Daytona State College. I currently serve as an Arbitrator in the Office of the State Attorney General.
I received a Paul Harris Fellow which was awarded by the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, and specifically given to eradicate Polio throughout the World.
My mentoring activities under the auspices of the county School Board have extended from Middle School reading programs to High School students programs. And as far as Volunteering is concerned I only have outlined the "Short List."
