Description of Practice

I am a licensed Attorney-Mediator in New York and New Jersey, with an active full-time practice for over 20 years.

Mediation helps families in conflict, and couples facing separation or divorce. In order for it to work, you need an experienced, understanding mediator. Having successfully mediated over a thousand cases in family and divorce matters, I can provide this service for you.

I also represent parties who are participating in mediation, and practice Collaborative Law in New York, where I represent clients in the non-adversarial cooperative process where parties and their counsel commit to resolve the issues fairly and without resorting to court.

Professional Background

I am an advanced practitioner member of the Academy of Family Mediators and a practicing attorney since 1985. I have been certified by the NYS Unified Court System as a mediation trainer, through which I trained hundreds of lawyers, judges, therapists and community members in mediation. I am also a member of the NJ Association of Professional Mediators, as well as an advanced practitioner member of the NYS Council for Divorce Mediation.


I am a former professor of mediation at Brooklyn Law School and the former Director of Victim Services Mediation Program, which mediated over 5000 cases annually in New York City. I also served on the Board of Directors for the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater New York.

Before turning to mediation, I practiced corporate law for two nationally known law firms in New York and San Francisco, negotiating hundreds of large and small corporate transactions.
