Commencing in 1980, since its very beginning, our law office has had a strong emphasis in real estate, trusts and estates, estate planning,  matrimonial law and civil litigation. Recognizing the ever-changing laws, I maintain my skills through continuing legal education programs and independent study.


Critically important is the support system that the law office provides. I am supported by a skilled staff of paralegals and am prepared to provide the most sophisticated legal services that you may require.
