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 for themselves and for their children, and the financial security they need.  My experience spans a broad range of family law matters, including divorce, complex property and debt division, business valuations, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, spousal maintenance, child support, community property issues in estate planning, mediation/arbitration, parenting time and legal decision-making issues, and post-decree disputes.   

I always focus on making the family court process less stressful for my clients as it is often a significant life transition.  Whenever possible, I prefer to resolve issues without litigation, because it is less expensive and less disruptive.  Sometimes, however, aggressive action and litigation is necessary to achieve a client’s goals and objectives.  In those cases, I have the skills, the experience, the best team, and the most effective resources at my disposal to accomplish my clients’ goals.  When hiring me for a complex matter, you get more than just one professional.  We have a network of professionals, including tax, financial, real estate, business valuation, and mental health professionals who work with me and assist my clients as they move through the process.

While I began my legal practice in New York City, where I practiced complex commercial and real estate litigation, I chose family law and Jaburg Wilk to be able to focus more on individual clients.  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.
