Prior to BM&M, I ran my own firm with satellite offices in CT, NY and FL, general practice focusing on bankrupty, criminal defense, and personal injury. I worked two years after law school for the New York Appellate Division, 2nd Dept. in Brooklyn as a court attorney writing the decisions for the judges. After that I worked one year for New York legal aid and then went out on my own for the flexibility and balance with family.
I was on the Spanish Honor Society in college and I waitressed at the Hillel on campus. I owned my own business in college, in Washington DC. I promoted businesses by hiring college kids to hand out pamphlets at the metro stations. I grew my business quickly and had a large clientelle of business before graduating and heading to law school. Business has been a passion of mine. I seem to earn the trust of clients easily, likely because I am trustworthy.
I decided to become a criminal defense lawyer when I was eight years old. I intended to represent the misunderstood juvenile delinquents. I related to their rebellion and anger. I have been practicing yoga since my teenage years and have found, through prayer and meditation, an ability to accept life on life’s terms without anger and with compassion and service. I have danced since I was eight years old and studied dance in college. I express myself through dance and find the practice of law somewhat of a dance. I would have been a dancer if not a lawyer.
My greatest strength as an attorney is my ability to empathize and understand. It allows me to see the problem and a solution clearly and without drama. I am passionately adamant against prejudice, especially based on the shade of skin. I want to inspire love and peace through intellect.
I lived in Israel on a kibbutz for a few months after high school and I was the sheep herder. I ate a lot of vegetables and vowed not to eat anything with a face on it. I have yet to accomplish that practice.
My husband died when my children were 1 and 5 and I have learned to face the challenge with grace by practicing acceptance and focusing on solutions. There always is one.
