  • Profile

My goal is to guide clients through this emotional time as compassionately and efficiently as possible. I will explain the legal process and discuss all available options to enable my clients to make an informed decision about how to move forward. I work collaboratively with my clients to obtain a solution that meets both their immediate and long-term needs. My objective is to negotiate a favorable resolution, and I will aggressively advocate on behalf of my client if the opposing party is uncooperative.

My legal experience includes working at Scaring & Brissenden, a White Collar Criminal Defense firm with a focus on financial crimes. For the past ten years, I worked in the litigation department of the Manhattan law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, LLP, concentrating on complex Government Investigations. The attention to detail that was necessary for that work will enable me to quickly grasp the specifics about your case, and determine a comprehensive strategy that meets your individual needs.

I was born in Queens and raised in Nassau County, where I currently reside with my husband, three children, and a labradoodle. I enjoy coaching my children's sports teams, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends.
