Providing Comprehensive Family Law Guidance

I am a lawyer who specializes in all facets of family law practice and have handled dozens of family law-related cases over the past 10 years. This includes simple modification cases, paternity issues, as well as the most complex divorce cases. Even though I will try to settle your case to avoid costly litigation, I am the kind of attorney who is more than prepared to take a case to trial and litigate it from beginning to end.

I understand that legal issues like divorce or custody can cause a tremendous amount of stress, nevertheless I enjoy helping my clients during these difficult times. Firms typically have the clock running when speaking with clients, but I am known for my willingness to sit down and listen and talk with my clients to truly determine their needs and legal goals. We will then formulate a strategy to move forward that you are comfortable with and gives your case the best chance for success.

Your Legal Guide During Difficult Times

My services include a wide range of areas:

  • Divorce and separation agreements: I handle dissolution agreements that are straightforward, complex or somewhere in between.
  • Child custody: One of the most contentious areas for a couple, custody issues are something I handle daily.
  • Litigation: I always prepare as if I am going to court and I have a strong background arguing cases in court.
  • Spousal maintenance and child support: This arrangement usually considers length of marriage, size of family, employment skills and financial resources.
  • Fathers' rights: Every family is different, but fathers sometimes need to fight to be involved in their children's lives.
  • Domestic violence issues: I can work to establish legal protection for you or other family members.
  • Equitable distribution of assets: New York is an equitable distribution state. This does not mean 50-50.
  • Prenups and postnups: These are more common these days and helpful for dual income couples, or couples with complex finances.
