A Reputation of Success
Family Law Attorney is an important decision. There are so many lawyers that making
the right choice can be difficult. Let me make that decision easy for
you. Retain the attorney that you trust, that understands what your case
is all about, what are your goals, has true settlement and courtroom experience,
that listens to you, explains the law and with whom you are confident.
Over the past 36 years as an attorney, my goal for each and every client
is beyond winning (if that word truly exists in Matrimonial Law) but to
make sure that every client knows that
I gave their case 100% and that they believe they had the best possible representation.
I have formed long term relationships with clients that have lasted beyond
their cases. One of my friends of over 20 years was a divorce client first
and then became a close personal friend. I have clients that I have represented
years ago who will refer their friends, co-workers and family to me and
nowhere else. The ability to develop and maintain a relationship with
a current client is so important because the advice that I give comes
from my knowledge of the law and desire to help solve problems. My job
is to reduce the anxiety and worries that are part of every matrimonial case.
Education & Experience
For the past 26 years of my 36 year career, I have practiced Divorce and
Family Law exclusively. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Franklin
& Marshall College in 1978 and graduated from the Benjamin Cardozo
School of Law of Yeshiva University with my Juris Doctor degree in 1981.
I have represented over 3,000 clients in Matrimonial and Family Law matters.
I have tried cases to conclusion involving almost every issue that can
arise between divorcing parties and/or non-married parties with a child
in common. I have obtained awards of counsel fees for my clients based
upon written decisions of the Court. Prior to trying any case, serious
efforts are always made to negotiate a settlement. However, when a case
cannot be settled,
I will try your case. I have previously served as a volunteer arbitrator
in the Civil Court of the City of New York, Small Claims Part and was
appointed by a Supreme Court Justice to serve as a Referee of a bitterly
contested matrimonial deposition. Prior to concentration in Matrimonial
and Family Law matters, I worked in several law firms and handled personal
injury matters, real estate closings, drafting and probating of wills
and general commercial litigation.
I am frequently consulted by other members of the bar and asked my opinion
and suggestions for difficult cases that my colleagues are handling. My
current clients include attorneys, doctors, police officers, teachers,
business owners, carpenters, electricians, landscapers, homemakers and
people as young as 19 and as old as 87.
