Adoption & Family Law Attorney


Protecting Your Legal Rights Since 1979

I am a White Plains, New York based Adoption and Family Law attorney. I represent clients (both adults and minors) in Adoption, as well as a broad range of Family Law, matters across the Hudson Valley. Throughout my more than 40 year career, I have purposely maintained my practice as a sole practitioner so that my clients get my complete and undivided attention. Unlike some law firms where your case may get passed off to a less experienced associate attorney following the initial consultation, when you retain me as your attorney, I work on your case from start to finish. I use my many years of experience to offer proven, cost-effective results for my clients.

At my law office, I work hard to protect your legal rights and resolve your legal issues as favorably as possible. I have a broad range of experience, including substantial courtroom trial and appellate experience. I am knowledgeable in Adoption and Family Law, as well as Probate and Estate Administration. My Family Law experience includes divorce and marital dissolutions, child custody and visitation matters (including relocation issues) as well as child abuse and neglect matters.

I understand the emotional and financial toll that such legal issues can take on a family. As an experienced negotiator, I endeavor to resolve your matters as painlessly and cost-effectively as possible. As an experienced trial lawyer, I stand ready to take your case to trial when circumstances so dictate. I do whatever it takes, legally and ethically, to protect your rights and those of your children.
