Claimed Lawyer Profile

I view my role as helping my clients understand what the legal system can and cannot do in resolving their disputes with their spouse or former spouse, ensuring that they obtain an equitable resolution of their dispute, and assisting them in dealing with the emotional turmoil that often accompanies a divorce or post divorce proceedings. My goal is to avoid unnecessarily increasing the tension level between the parties, or to “pour gasoline on the fire” simply to satisfy a misdirected client, and thereby increase the animosity (and legal fees) to everyone. However, when justified, I will thoroughly and aggressively pursue all avenues of relief for my clients. I have over 20 years of experience practicing exclusively in this area of law and have represented countless clients in Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx in divorces, custody and visitation disputes, child support and maintenance disputes, orders of protection, as well as negotiating pre nuptial and post nuptial agreements between couples.
