Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
It is difficult to pin point one (1) case that I am most proud of... rather each of my adoptions are special and hold a huge space in my heart. However, recently I was involved in a matter where the biological mother was a single mom and suffering from an advanced form of cancer. I helped her find a home for her 7 year old twins, while assuring her they would be in a loving home and maintain a close relationship with their biological family. I have maintained contact with the adoptive family, as well as, my client's family.

How did you build a successful practice?
As an adult adoptee it was always my passion to help people form families through adoption. I am also sensitive to the feelings of biological feelings in placing their babies of adoption. I work hard. I am passionate about what I do, recognize the need to be compassionate towards my clients journey. Adoption is an emotional process.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Experience and competence in the area of law. And a genuine "connection" with their attorney. Anyone can file papers. However, not everyone can make you feel comfortable.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
I provide potential clients an overview of the adoption process. I explain the different types of adoption available to prospective adoptive parents. I explain how a pregnant woman can feel safe in her decision to place her baby.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
Names, county that they reside, knowledge of adoption process

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
My hands on approach to the adoption. I hold my clients hands throughout the entire process.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Knowing that I played a part in so many families.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Reading, boating, working out, and a Netflix addict.

Are you involved in your community?
When my children were younger, I was PTA president- and avid soccer, basketball and lacrosse "mom". I am on the executive board of the Nassau County Woman's Bar Association.
