I established my solo law practice on April 1, 2006. My main office is located in midtown Manhattan across from Grand Central Station. I have a satellite office in Brooklyn, New York. If you can’t come to me, I will travel to your home to meet with you. My personal mission is to provide you with peace of mind. I want to empower you to plan for your future with dignity and address the unique issues that pertain to you and your family.
Prior to obtaining my law degree, I earned an M.S. in Disability Counseling. I assisted and advocated for individuals with brain injury, stroke and other acquired brain injury. I found this work very rewarding. In 1996, I took time off from work to care for my mother who passed away at the young age of 58. Deeply affected by my family experience, I wanted to become a stronger advocate for people with disabilities.
I obtained my Juris Doctorate (J.D.) in 2003 from Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and was admitted to practice law in the State of New York on March 10, 2004.
My practice concentrates on Guardianship Litigation, Medicaid Planning, Medicaid Applications, Asset Protection, Estate Planning (Wills, Trusts, and Advance Directives), Special Needs Planning, Estate Administration and Probate.
I believe that my past career as a counselor, personal experience with my own family and legal expertise allows me to provide comprehensive legal and counseling services to my clients. I not only assist to navigate the legal hurdles, I rely heavily on my counseling experience to discover your unique situation and work hard to address your individual needs.
I am a member of Super Lawyers, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), New York State Bar Association/Elder Law Committee (NYSBA), New York City Bar Association/Legal Referral Panel (NYCLRS), Brooklyn Bar Association/Legal Referral Panel (BBA.LRS), National Legal Service Plan, New York Woman’s Bar Association (NYWBA) and Brooklyn Columbian Lawyers.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree (B.A) from Rutgers University, Douglas College in 1990.
I look forward to meeting you!
