I began this practice to provide legal services to Intended Parents wishing to grow their family through assisted reproductive technology or adoption, and Expectant Mothers, Gestational Carriers, Surrogates, Egg Donors and Sperm Donors helping families fulfill these hopes.

I grew up on Long Island and attended Loyola University in Maryland before graduating from the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University with a concentration in International Law.  I practiced family law in New York, and criminal defense in Memphis, Tennessee, before moving to Maine in 2013 where I live today with my husband and two daughters.  I am admitted to the bar in Maine and New York.  I have volunteered with Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project (ILAP), and served as the Secretary of the Board of Directors for MaineShare, a non-profit organization.

I am  a member of the American Bar Association Reproductive Technology Committee and Adoption Committee, the Maine State Bar Association, the Cumberland County Bar Association, and RESOLVE New England.
