My grandfather was a Rabbi and my father a country Doctor. I have always seen myself as continuing in their footsteps - tending to the needs of people, be they spiritual, physical or social. The type of law practice that I have chosen is a people practice, including Domestic Relations, Estate Planning and Administration, Social Security Disability, and Collaborative Family Law. In all four areas of the law, we are grappling with some of life's greatest stresses. My hope is to play a role in the healing process.
