Description of Practice

The focus of my practice is on Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Divorce Practice, This is the most favorable way to go through the divorce process. I advocate for one spouse and another collaboratively trained attorney advocates for the other spouse but we all work together, as a team, sometimes along with a financial planner or a therapist, to create a settlement agreement that works for both parties. The couple will save time, and money and never have to see inside a court room. This process avoids the caustic, highly charged and emotional adversarial route that a litigated divorce would inherently produce.

Professional Background

I am an attorney, a certified mediator and collaborative divorce attorney. For the first several years, I litigated both personal injury and matrimonial matters as well as served as a mediator and as an arbitrator. For the past five years, I almost exclusively focus my practice on resolving conflicts peacefully and smoothly via mediation or a collaborative team approach. I continue to arbitrate commercial cases and no-fault cases for the District Court, Nassau County as well as for FINRA.

Degrees

J.D. Cum Laude, Touro Law School, 1997 B.A. Psychology, Summa Cum Laude, SUNY-Albany

Approach

I believe that almost all disputes can be resolved amicably, without the need of court intervention. I am of the firm belief that the court system actually inflames the conflict. In mediation, I assist the parties to learn what their needs are and then to relay this to the other individual. They will also be able to listen and learn about what the other individual's needs and interests are. In this way, the parties can create an agreement that is to their mutual satisfaction. In Arbitration, the parties get a chance to make their case, and instead of it being a protracted, costly and heated litigation, as the arbitrator, I will issue a decision and put this conflict to bed.

Other Information

I have offices in New York City, Nassau County and Suffolk County
