Description of Practice

As a practicing mediator and attorney. I provide mediation services in the areas of commercial mediation and family mediation (divorce, separation, custody/visitation, support, elder). My law practice is focused on agreement drafting, negotiation and counseling. I bring a pragmatism to my practice drawn from the breadth of my experience.

I am a mediator on the following panels:

  • Commercial Division, Westchester County, NY State Supreme Court
  • Commercial Division, New York County, NY State Supreme Court
  • Matrimonial Part, Westchester County, NY State Supreme Court
  • Surrogate's Court, Westchester County, NY State Supreme Court
  • American Arbitration Association Storm Sandy mediation panel
  • Westchester Mediation Center for cases in the NY State Unified Court System.
With over twenty years’ experience as an attorney, I have focused on agreement negotiation and drafting, strategic planning and counseling, and intellectual property (patents, trademarks, trade secrets) as a registered patent attorney. I began my legal career at a boutique intellectual property law firm, and have held subsequent in-house counsel positions at both large, multinational and small start-up companies, including small pharmaceutical companies. From 2007 to the present, I have maintained a solo law and mediation practice.

Professional Background

I completed basic and advance mediation training for commercial and family mediation. My initial mediation training was through the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, and completed advanced commercial training in conjunction with the New York County Commercial Division requirements. I pursued specialized mediation training in divorce, including a year-long practical course, custody/visitation, elder and LGBTQ issues. I participate in the pro-bono mediation program with the Westchester Mediation Center of CLUSTER in small claims courts and for custody/visitation matters referred by the family courts in Westchester County.

Degrees

Education: JD from Harvard Law School. BS degrees (double major) in Chemistry and Biology from MIT.

Admissions. New York State. US Patent and Trademark Office, Federal courts in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Approach

I bring a pragmatism to my practice drawn from the breadth of my experience in the legal and mediation worlds. I follow a facilitative approach to mediation utilizing transformative elements. I recognize that each mediation has its own unique pace, as does each party. Acknowledging the requirements for efficiency from a business perspective, and a need to vent from an emotional perspective, I tailor my approach to the needs of the particular mediating parties. During the mediation, I stay attuned to the needs of the parties as they may shift throughout the process.
