    About my Practice

    When I was a young lawyer and would give clients practical advice that would resolve their issues instead of legal advice that would aggravate them, I remember thinking that there was something wrong with me. That I wasn't a normal lawyer. Twenty years after I started practicing law the collaborative movement was introduced in New York. I had finally found a home for my kind of lawyering. Where it is normal to be helpful in divorce representations. Where my business could be in alignment with my mind and heart. My practice is a blend of litigations, mediations and collaborative family and divorce cases. Regardless of the nature of the case, I am committed to helping my clients, collaborative counterparts, adversaries and myself listen to, understand and respect each other. When we can accomplish that, the rest falls into place.
