Lawyering

I advocate for people who are disabled, abused or neglected. I hold NY State Fiduciary License #649437 qualifying me to serve as Guardian, Court Evaluator and Attorney for Allegedly Incapacitated Persons.

I represent clients in Guardianship, Surrogate and Probate Courts in all five boroughs and Long Island in connection with Guardianships, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Proxies, Advanced Care Directives, and Wills.

The outcome of each case depends on a number of unique factors. No lawyer can guarantee similar results in every case.


Teaching & Writing

I produce and co-host a free podcast about the art of writing and the business of publishing. You can hear "Life Lines, The Books Podcast" on i-Tunes, Stitcher, GooglePlay, SoundCloud and TuneIn. This free show is sponsored by The Brooklyn Writers Project, where aspiring writers can find resources for creating, publishing and distributing their work.
