Family Law


A significant portion of my practice focuses on family law.  This area of law is highly emotionally charged and includes such issues as divorce, custody, visitation, supervised visitation, spousal and child support, equitable distribution, orders of protection, domestic violence, same sex marriage, modification of child support and spousal maintenance, modification of custody and visitation, paternity actions, pre and post nuptial agreements, and more.


I am a zealous litigator who has successfully won custody for fathers and mothers alike.  When we meet to discuss your specific needs, we will also discuss viable resolutions without litigation.  My goal is to settle your case, and if at all possible, to avoid the high emotional and financial costs associated with litigation.  I am also a trained divorce mediator.


One of my recent cases was published in the New York Law Journal in August 2015.  For further information, please see my PRESS page.
