When representing my family law clients, my goal is to achieve the best possible results so that they can move on to the next phase of their lives with a plan and the support they need.  Whenever possible, I prefer to resolve issues without litigation, because it is less expensive and less disruptive.  Sometimes, however, litigation is necessary to achieve a client’s goals and objectives.  In those cases, I have the skills, the experience, the team, and the resources at my disposal to accomplish my clients’ goals.  My experience spans a broad range of family law issues, including unique custody, real estate, business valuation, and complex financial issues.  We have cultivated a network of professionals, including tax, financial, real estate, business valuation, and mental health professionals who work together with me to assist my clients in every area of their lives as they move through this significant life transition.

I also take great pride in using my interpersonal skills to help make the family court process less stressful for my clients.  I coach and support my clients through the ups, the downs, and the uncertainties of the process, of which there will be many.  I do not paint a rosy picture for my clients when it is not based in fact.  I do not withhold information from my clients that I know will upset them.  I tell my clients like it is and provide well-thought-out options regarding how to respond, react, and get ahead of whatever is thrown our way. 

I began my legal practice in New York City where I practiced complex commercial and real estate litigation.  I eventually realized that my personal skills could be better utilized in a more individual client-focused practice, which is when I discovered family law and Jaburg Wilk.  Now, I have the privilege of making a life-changing difference for my clients every time I pick up the phone, step into the office, or walk into a courtroom.  I love what I do.
