Experience and Empathy…
For more than 40 years, I have focused on non-adversarial legal counseling, collaboration and mediation for my clients who live in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex Counties in New Jersey. Online mediation is accessible by Zoom for interested parties throughout the New Jersey.

I have gone through a divorce and a remarriage blending children. I understand first-hand the emotional turmoil and financial worries that you experience. I strive to provide cost effective and client centered options by collaboration, cooperative negotiation or mediation to resolve family issues including divorce, alimony, child custody and support and property distribution. As your NJ divorce attorney or mediator in Monmouth County and Ocean County, I can offer over forty years of experience, consideration for your emotional turmoil and a respectful sensitivity to your situation and needs.

Past President of the NJ Council of Collaborative Practice Groups, past president of the Jersey Shore Collaborative Law Group, member of MC Mediation and Collaborative Divorce Professionals, member of Collaborative Divorce Professionals, an Accredited Practitioner member and former Board member of the NJ Association of Professional Mediators, trainer and speaker in mediation and collaborative law, member of the IACP and IACP Ethics and Standards Committee, former VP of the NJSBA Dispute Resolution Section

ADR Experience

advanced courses in mediation and collaborative law; frequent instructor,trainer and speaker


Every couple or family is different. I look to find the right approach to resolve the dispute with civility and help parties reach a durable agreement. When a couple has children, establishing a post divorce relationship to provide effective co-parenting is key.
