    About my Practice

    I am a collaborative attorney and mediator practicing in Brooklyn, Great Neck and Port Jefferson Station focussing on family and couples conflicts, divorce, separation and custody and visitation/parenting plans including relocation.  I am a certified mediator and mentor at the New York Peace Institute and a member of the Custody and Visitation Mediation Panel of the NYC Family Courts and I am the President of the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater New York.

    I firmly believe that the collaborative process, where the parties shape and determine the results, is a far more effective method of resolving conflict than the traditional court system, that produces superior results that best serve the interests of you and your family.
