I have practiced law in New York since 1991 and in Connecticut since 2004. When I decided to go solo, I built a practice around helping individuals, couples, and families plan for the transfer of property, as well as guiding executors and families through the estate administration process when a loved one has died.
I began my career in corporate law, welcoming the challenge and complexity of working with large international firms. My years of corporate experience at the firms White & Case and Linklaters shaped both the sophistication of my work and my tailored approach to client service.
While I’m a native New Yorker and will always love the city, I was drawn to Roxbury Connecticut for its open space and close-knit community. I chose this town for my personal and professional home, and opened a law practice that reflects the beliefs I was raised with. My work here is deeply gratifying.
I started life in Queens, New York, then spent my formative years in Connecticut at The Ethel Walker School. I graduated from Yale University with a BA in Psychology, also earning a certificate in British Studies during my junior year abroad in London. I earned my law degree at Harvard.
When I’m not practicing law, I’m doing needlework, cooking, gardening, or otherwise enjoying life in the woods with my husband, Steven, and our dog, Charlotte. I have never played a sport, but in my student years and beyond was a modern dancer and choral singer. Lack of athletic prowess aside, I am proud that in midlife I have been certified to teach spinning, Nia dance, and yoga — proving it is never too late!
In years past I have served on a number of nonprofit boards and as Vice-Chancellor of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and on Committee One of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut.
Currently I serve on the Board of Regional Hospice and Home Care of Western Connecticut.
