ATTORNEY AT LAW
I am a sole practitioner with over 24 years of experience in the field of family law, primarily focusing on divorce. I have an office in Wilson Borough, Northampton County, PA, and also handle estate planning and probate matters.
Prior to attending law school I was a legal secretary to Chester A. Reybitz, Esquire, in Bethlehem, PA for 23 years. During law school I interned for the Hon. James C. Hogan of Northampton County Court of Common Pleas.
I received my B.A. in Business Administration / Management from Moravian College (1993) and my J.D. from Temple University School of Law (1996).
My approach in representing clients in family law proceedings is to provide personal and compassionate representation, to achieve realistic goals and obtain a fair result, with the least amount of acrimony and fighting. Family law matters are very emotionally draining by their nature. This is especially true in child custody matters where both parents will be involved with their children and each other for a long time. Being able to maintain civility through the process will benefit both the children and parents.
