I am an experienced and passionate attorney who specializes predominately in the field of matrimonial and family law, also handling cases in the field of criminal law and civil litigation. I have appeared regularly before the Supreme Court and Family Court Judges in Suffolk and Nassau counties and has tried cases in said courts on numerous occasions. I am recognized as an accomplished trial lawyer who tries not only my own cases but has cases referred to me by other attorneys.

While I believe in and work for clients to resolve matrimonial and family law cases, I also possess an expertise in trying complex and difficult matters. My litigated trials have included issues of:


  • custody
  • visitation
  • equitable distribution
  • child support
  • spousal maintenance
  • neglect
  • Orders of Protection
  • juvenile delinquency


I have a reputation for being an aggressive attorney while fairly and reasonably representing clients in difficult and complicated matters. My firm has successfully tried cases on behalf of mothers and fathers seeking custody of their children, and on behalf of grandparents seeking visitation withand custody of their grandchildren, both in the Supreme Court and Family Court. With nearly 30 years of experience, I am a dedicated family law attorney in Huntington, NY who provides exceptional representation to clients throughout Suffolk and Nassau counties.
