I am a "family lawyer" in the broadest sense of the term. I have practiced since 1974, representing families, members of families (and others in a relationship) during good times and bad times. I have represented approximately 1,000 divorce clients, both civilian and military, and more than that number of clients in other domestic matters such as adoptive parents, juveniles, unmarried parents, grandparents, and partners. I mediate all family issues with a co-mediator who is a family and child psychotherapist when not mediating with me.
I also have focused my practice on wills, estates, trusts, probate, and all elder law issues such as Medicaid planning and long-term care insurance questions.
I have mediated intergenerational problems, sibling problems, and other estate related problems among family members. I have mediated hundreds of divorce, parenting, paternity, child support, grandparents and partner matters.
Many of my clients seek my counsel on all of their legal issues. They know that if a specialist is needed, I will refer them to the lawyer who is the best fit for their specific need.
