Matrimonial and Family Law

Westchester County, New York City, and the Hudson Valley

This is a challenging area of the law in which I have a wealth of personal experience as lead counsel in Supreme Court divorce trials, Family Court trials and appeals.  My cases have made new law on grounds for divorce, Equitable Distribution, maintenance, custody, relocation, child support guidelines, counsel fees, and college expenses.

After becoming a partner in a distinguished New York firm concentrating in matrimonial law in my first year out of law school, I have been the head of a large Westchester County litigation firm and the head of the matrimonial department in a New York City firm concentrating in matrimonial law together with all facets of domestic relations law and family law cases.

I have appeared as trial counsel in Westchester, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau, Suffolk, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland, Orange, Ulster, and Albany counties.  I have argued appeals in the New York Court of Appeals, and Appellate Divisions in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Albany. These cases include Uttamchandani v. Uttamchandani, 2019 NYSlipOp 06644 and 2019 NYSlipOp 06645. I have also been trial counsel in cases in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Maryland.

In addition to writing and lecturing for many bar associations, I have served on the Executive Committee of the New York State Bar Association, Family Law Section and as Chair of its Committee on Legislation.  I have also been a member of the Board of Managers of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, New York Chapter. I serve on the New York State Bar Association Committee on Children and the Law as well.

I am also currently a member of several bar associations and local community groups.

I have a Martindale-Hubbell A-V rating from my colleagues in Matrimonial Law.
