Profession(s): Family Law Attorney
Counties Served: Middlesex, Norfolk, Suffolk
About Me:

The focus of my practice is the resolution of family, divorce and post-divorce disputes through collaborative law and mediation. I also teach the skills that I apply in my practice as an adjunct professor at Northeastern University School of Law and New England Law | Boston.

As an attorney since 1983, I draw on extensive litigation experience negotiating multi-million dollar settlements and successfully trying over thirty cases. In 1998, I refocused my practice from litigation to alternative dispute resolution in order to produce more satisfying, cost-effective and comprehensive resolutions for my clients.

I served on the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council from 2011 to 2014 and served as Vice President of Education and Training from 2012 - 2013. I also served as Co-Chair of the Boston Bar Association - Boston Municipal Court Alternative Dispute Resolution Task Force, operating a mediation program in Boston Municipal Court for more than ten years.
