I have been in practice since 1973 and I have concentrated my practice to Matrimonial/Family Law. I am a member of the New York State Bar, Federal Bar, American Bar, District of Columbia Bar and Nassau Bar, as well as the Matrimonial Committees of the State of New York and the County of Nassau. I served as a panelist on the Early Neutral Evaluation Panel and I am a member of the Nassau County Arbitration panel for Fee Disputes. I am admitted to the Federal Court of the Southern and Eastern Districts of the State of New York, the Court of Military Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
I graduated from Washington College of Law at American University in Washington, DC. I began my career as an attorney with the United States Air Force as a Base Assistant Staff Judge Advocate serving first at McConnell Air Force Base and then in Ankara, Turkey. At both postings, I handled primarily criminal litigation and at that time, a new aspect of military law, called Preventive Law. The Preventive Law program enabled me to handle certain aspects of civil law, including matrimonial law and family law. I wrote two Preventive Law publication handbooks which were used at each military base.
In 1984, I became a partner in Feldman, Kramer and Roberts, PC, a Suffolk County law firm, wherein my main focus was matrimonial and family law. In 1997, I opened my own practice concentrating in matrimonial and family law.
I offer my time as a volunteer to various divorce support groups in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens and my paralegal, Debbie, attends these meetings with me.
We both attend and belong to the Jewish Lawyers Association and I attend the Nassau County Matrimonial Committee meetings and Nassau County Bar functions.
I am an avid sports enthusiast. I belong to four softball leagues, play basketball year round and football in the winter. When my children were young, I coached my son’s soccer, baseball and basketball teams and my daughter’s basketball and volleyball teams.
My paralegal, Debbie Eisenstadt, was a teacher for over 17 years. In 1996, she became a certified paralegal having completed the program “with distinction.” She worked for a litigation attorney before joining my firm in October of 1997. Debbie speaks and writes fluent Hebrew. She is devoted to the firm’s clients and to helping people going through marital difficulties. That is why Debbie gives of her time by attending various organizational and support meetings with me, separate and apart from her employment. She is an avid reader and artistically inclined. Debbie likes to listen to music, paint, sculpt, crochet and knit.
