I help professionals find solutions when workplace conflict feels overwhelming.
My mediation and conflict coaching practice focuses on workplace disputes and family conflict. Clients walk into my office feeling discouraged, frustrated, and overwhelmed. I enjoy helping them work through their conflicts to establish creative and fulfilling solutions.
As a criminal defense attorney, I have represented thousands of clients through the full range of charges: from simple marijuana possession to robbery and attempted murder. I received my trial training from Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor (then a 2nd Circuit Judge).
I share these skills with the students I teach at New York Law School.
