Description of Practice

I have practiced law for over 28 years and I am admitted to the bar in both Massachusetts and New York. In addition to family law, my background includes experience in 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 and presenting advanced courses in divorce law, mediation, marital mediation and collaborative law. From 2007 through 2010, I was the Coordinator of Court and Divorce Mediation Services at a community mediation program in Cambridge. I am the former Vice President of the Massachusetts Council for Family Mediation and I am a former Co-Chair of the Charles River Collaborative Law Practice Group. I am a member of the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council, the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA), the Massachusetts Guardianship Association, the New England Association for Conflict Resolution, and the Dispute Resolution Counsel of the MBA. 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. I help my clients transition through divorce with confidence.
