I am a solo practitioner, concentrating in the area of matrimonial and family law. This includes uncontested and contested divorces, divorce mediation, separation agreements, support, custody, and prenuptial agreements.

I approach law from a very personal view, looking to the total and individual needs of my clients. I have a diversified background, including tenure as a college professor and administrator, which, I believe, has given me a humanistic perspective. I am always in touch with my clients and am always available to remedy their problems and bring them peace of mind. If possible, using the less painful and less expensive divorce mediation method with my wife Iris social work partner for mediation, who has had many years of experience helping individuals and families get through this difficult time.

The strength of my practice is that it is a very personal practice. I am always available for my clients–days, nights and weekends, will always immediately get back to them, will give them personal attention, and they will work only with me, except for divorce mediation, and you will not have to deal with other associates, paralegals or staff.

My fees are affordable and the initial phone or office consultation is free. I am available, if necessary, days, evenings and weekends. I practice in Rockland, Westchester, Orange and surrounding New York counties.
