Child custody cases can be bitter and expensive. Some parents end up spending thousands of dollars on lawyers and court fees only to have a Judge come to a result that isn’t what anyone wanted.
You want to be with your children, but you don't want to go through a long, expensive legal battle that could leave both you and your ex at odds with each other for years to come.
I help parents resolve custody issues, sometimes without having to go to court at all, saving clients thousands of dollars in legal fees.
I am an attorney, but I am also a mom, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, granddaughter, a caregiver. Whatever you are going through as it relates to your family, let's talk about it. I can either guide you on how to handle it yourself, or I can represent you in your case. Either way, you don't have to go it alone.
El Camino de Santiago is a 500-mile pilgrim’s route through Spain, which I walked in 1995. I was on a search for spiritual enlightenment, adventure and knowledge - I found all three, and was in turn profoundly affected by the experience.
My firm’s name and logo are a tribute to my beloved Camino.
In August, 1934, my grandfather took on a pro bono case in front of the Supreme Court. He represented Angelo Herndon, a Black man who had been sentenced to 18 to 20 years on the Georgia chain gang for "possessing radical literature.” After the first argument in 1935, the Supreme Court denied Mr. Herndon's appeal by a vote of 6 to 3 (Justices Brandeis, Cardozo and Stone dissenting). My grandfather went back and argued the case again in February 8, 1937 – and this time, the Court ruled in his favor by a vote of 5 to 4, and Mr. Herndon was freed
I was a teenager when my grandfather died, so the impact of his work didn't really resonate with me until years later.
But he inspired my whole family: my late uncle was U.S attorney in New York, my cousin does appellate work, and my brother and sister-in-law were assistant U.S attorneys in New York. Their high standards and ethics infuse everything I do and I strive to live up to their good work.
