My goal as a family law lawyer, is to make each client feel less stressed during their time of need, feel that their interests and issues are heard, and help them reach their goals in a dignified manner. My professional knowledge, combined with my ability to understand and empathize with tough and highly emotional situations, enables me to provide the best possible legal representation. I have been practicing law since 2002, and for many years my practice included litigation. However, my true passion and focus is to negotiate settlements out of court using a collaborative approach. Reaching a successful settlement in a family law case stems from interest-based negotiations, and takes into account all parties' needs and wants. My collaborative practice allows me to do this, while remaining a strong advocate for my clients. I ensure that my clients understand their legal rights and options, while looking at realistic interests and goals that are important to them. This way I am able to work diligently towards a fair settlement. Where necessary we will bring in other collaboratively trained professionals including family therapists and financial advisers, to ultimately help reach a solution more efficiently. Divorce, separation, caring and supporting the children, sorting out and dividing finances, and learning to move on with your life is very stressful. Navigating these complex issues in a collaborative fashion will help my clients get through this life stage with more dignity, respect and hope. My staff and I pride ourselves on being honest, transparent and compassionate. We speak English, Spanish, Romanian, Hungarian and Hebrew. We are also a dog friendly office (only if you like dogs; otherwise you will not see any!)
