    About my Practice

    I am a family mediator and collaborative attorney with offices in Westchester and NYC.

    Prior to opening up my own practice, I was a commercial litigator at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, LLP and Friedman, Wang & Bleiberg, LLP (now Foley & Lardner, LLP). Seeing first hand the emotional and financial toll of litigation, and appreciating that it often is ill-suited for family disputes, I now dedicate my legal and mediation practice exclusively to helping people find non-adversarial resolutions to conflict.

    Providing mediation, legal consultation, and collaborative representation, I guide and support each client with compassion and understanding. I respect my clients as unique individuals who are the ultimate authorities on what is in the best interest for themselves and their families. I take pride in my personalized and attentive service.

    I live in Larchmont with my husband, 3 children, and enormous dog Wilbur.
