Her practice includes divorce, alimony, child support, child custody, prenuptial agreements, co-habitation agreements, post-divorce cases and related matters. She has a particular interest in finding creative solutions in order to help divorcing parties successfully negotiate amicable settlements.

She has served as a judge pro tem in the Family Law Division of the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas, and in 2007 and 2008, she was named a “Pennsylvania Super Lawyer” by Philadelphia Magazine. She has an AV rating, the highest rating awarded by The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating system, based on the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary.
