I graduated from New York University in 1987 with a BFA in Film Criticism and a minor in Political Science. I spent ten exciting post-undergraduate years working in New York, including work at a very large and prestigious law firm (400 attorneys, 72 partners - all with tempers) and got tremendous experience in all aspects of law firm life.

For most of my time in law school, I worked as the Chief Deputy Register of Wills for New Castle County. The summer following my graduation, I had the great privilege of clerking in Delaware Superior Court for the Honorable Richard S. Gebelein. For the next two years, I worked as an associate attorney at a small boutique estate planning law firm in Old New Castle where I gained valuable experience working with high net worth clients and their families before opening my own office.

I am admitted to practice law in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

In addition to my law practice, I am also an Adjunct Faculty Member Wilmington University where I teach Estate Planning and Probate for students in the Paralegal certification program and Business Law to Accounting and Finance Majors.
