Helping people transition through divorce with confidence
My focus is on divorce mediation, family and collaborative law. I believe that family law is the most important and rewarding area of law in which a lawyer can practice. It is also an area of law in which clients need experienced, skilled, and compassionate professionals to help them navigate the process.
I have practiced law for over 26 years and I am admitted to the bar in both Massachusetts and New York. In addition to family law, my background includes experience in landlord/tenant, real estate and intellectual property matters (focus on artists, museums and non-profits).
In 2001, I was formally trained as a mediator. Since that time, I have continued my training by taking advanced courses in divorce law, mediation, marital mediation and collaborative law. Over the past several years, I have trained new mediators in basic and divorce mediation for several area community mediation programs. From 2007 through 2010, I was the Coordinator of Court and Divorce Mediation Services at a community mediation program in Cambridge.
I am on the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts Council for Family Mediation. I am a member of the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council, the Massachusetts Bar Association, and the Massachusetts Juvenile Bar Association. I graduated from Whittier College School of Law (J.D.) and Boston University (B.S.). I also received a Certificate in Museum Studies from Tufts University.
