Job Title
I was born and raised on Long Island, New York. I am married and have two beautiful children who always keep me on my toes.  I graduated from Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center at Touro College in 2003 and practiced law in New York for over 14 years, 12 of which concentrated in Family Law.  I moved to North Carolina in January 2018 in search of a better quality of life for my family.  While practicing family law in New York, I represented clients with issues involving divorce and/or separation, domestic partnerships, custody, support, domestic violence, paternity, and many other family situations.   My extensive experience allows me to bring a unique perspective to each case that I work on. Family law clients are often faced with a variety of emotional situations. I offer a calm, helpful and supportive demeanor as I handle your immediate needs, while patiently explaining the law and procedures. While our clients experience open and frequent communication with their attorney, I am an additional liaison between the clients and our firm.
