CIVIL TRIALS & APPEALS, NEGOTIATED SETTLEMENTS, NON-LITIGATION SERVICES

2018 brings a lot of updates and changes to the world of divorce, family law, and commercial law. With the advent of e-filing, it’s easier to bring a divorce case or a commercial case but there are a lot more requirements and procedures than there were even a couple of years ago. Mandatory disclosure and scheduling requirements under the newest procedures keep cases moving forward with a substantial amount of document exchanges and preservation of evidence for trial. I am also a member of the Financial Planning Association of the Greater Hudson Valley and the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce.

I have been awarded an A-V rating on Martindale-Hubbell by my peers and clients and have current recognition as well as a 2017 distinguished client champion. I am a member of the New York State Bar Association, Family Law Section and Committee on Children and the Law. I have served on the Executive Committee of the New York State Bar Association, Family Law Section and the Board of Managers of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. I am also a member of the Westchester County Bar Association, Family Law Section, the Putnam County Bar Association and the American Academy of Certified Financial Litigators. I am also a member of the Financial Planning Association of the Greater Hudson Valley, the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, and the Lincoln society in Peekskill.

Throughout my career, I have given numerous presentations to other lawyers through professional organizations and to non-lawyer groups as well on many legal and financial topics. My published articles and dozens of successful appeals are regularly cited by courts and distinguished lecturers throughout New York. I have successfully argued cases for my clients in the New York Court of Appeals and three of the four Appellate Divisions in divorce law, equitable distribution law, family law, commercial law, and employment law. I am regularly called upon to try cases in the Matrimonial Part and the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court, and the Family Court as well.

I have represented clients from a dozen different states and many foreign countries bringing before the tribunals the comparisons between legal systems (both interstate and international) and different cultures requiring special proofs and explanations before the trial courts.
