I have been practicing family law and divorce mediation full time in Massachusetts since 2003, and I have successfully mediated over 1500 cases to completion.
I have been admitted to the bar in Pennsylvania, California, New York, and Massachusetts. I received my BA from Brown University, magna cum laude, in 1987 and my law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1991.
Before moving to Massachusetts, I was Staff Attorney at the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law in Los Angeles, and I served as Director of the Feinstein Institute for Legal Service at the Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol, Rhode Island.
I live in Amherst, MA with my husband, family dog, and, occasionally, three grown children.
