Adoption Attorney Helping New York Families Since 1985

I decided to focus my practice on adoption when my wife and I adopted our son. I was inspired and changed by the experience and wanted to guide others to similar positive outcomes. Empathy, understanding and firsthand experience are key to effective legal representation in any adoption. I offer all of these attributes, as well as a longstanding reputation in New York's adoption community.

More Than 2,000 Adoptions In New York

I have represented adoptive and birth parents in more than 2,000 adoptions. I understand what is at stake — the lives of parents, children and extended families are significantly impacted by the legal decisions made during an adoption. I will be your voice and advocate at this critical time.
