Website Photo 2.jpg

I have been practicing family law exclusively for over twenty-five years.  Prior to opening my family law practice, I was in-house counsel for a small publishing company in New York City, and prior to that, I worked in a small firm handling a variety of civil and criminal cases.  I was admitted to the practice of law in California in 1980 and in New York in 1984. [I am currently inactive in New York.]

Since 1999, I have been a Certified Family Law Specialist [State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.]
