Description of Practice

I always wanted to be a lawyer so that I could help people. After graduating from Siena College in 1991, I went on to Albany Law School and was admitted to the NYS Bar in 1995. After graduation, I started practicing law with Valerie Kerker doing mostly real estate and some family law. After some time, I opted to concentrate my practice in only family law and took mediation and collaborative training as well. Mediation and collaborative law have always interested me as a way to help families and to keep family matters out of the court room. Both mediation and collaborative law are processes well suited for the resolution of family matters by allowing the participants the opportunity to decide their own future. I was a founding member of the Collaborative Divorce Association of the Capital District in 2008, am a past president, and continue to sit on the Board of Directors. Valerie Kerker and I are currently partners in Kerker & Gleeson P.C. and also operate Family Mediation Services.
