As an adoptive dad, I know the options for building your family can seem overwhelming. You need a trusted advisor to help you step by step through the process. I will listen to your concerns and work with you to find the best way for you to build your family. And I can help you safeguard your family with proper planning for the future.

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in History from Northwestern University, I earned a law degree from the American University Washington College of Law. I am licensed to practice law in New York, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. I concentrate my practice on adoption, reproductive law, and estate planning.

I am a founding board member of Equality New York, a statewide LGBTQI advocacy organization. I served two terms as the President of the Board of Directors of the National LGBT Bar Association’s Foundation. I am a Fellow of the Academy of Adoption and ART Attorneys, and a member of LeGaL – the LGBT Bar Association of Greater NY's Family and Matrimonial Law Committee.
