Why Choose Me?


I have been in the court room, focusing on divorce and family law matters for more than 40 years. I have seen scores of all types of divorce and frequently handle high-asset and high-profile cases with discretion and a commitment to client confidentiality.

Credibility, Respect And Recognition

I have the highest professional rating in skills and ethics, membership in all major bar associations and more than 200 appearances on national television and major networks to my credit. Media outlets often seek my guidance for accurate commentary on legal issues.

A Record Of Success

I have helped countless clients achieve the best results possible in their divorces, focusing on negotiation and the smart and efficient use of the court system.

Valuable Counsel

I fight smart. During the stressful time that accompanies the divorce, when it is difficult for anyone to make rational decisions, I provide an honest assessment of my clients’ situation. I help them understand the financial realities of divorce, as well as the long-term costs and benefits of their choices.

My Commitment To Personal Representation

When I take you on as a client you will not be shuffled off to a nameless group of young associates. I like to think of myself as the quarterback, not the faceless man behind the curtains. If a team of seasoned experts is required, we will assemble it, but I will always direct the entire process.

As a native New Yorker, I know how to get to the right place in the right building. I speak the language of our courts. I know how to get things done for my clients. Let me help you.
