I am an attorney and divorce mediator who works with clients as a neutral third party to assist them in achieving a mutually agreed upon settlement of divorce.  As a mediator, my goal is to provide my clients with information and a supportive environment that fosters mutual respect and that ends with the best results for both of the parties and their children.

Having been through divorce mediation personally, I embrace the mediation process not only as a practitioner advocate, but also as a former client of mediation.  This experience has given me the unique ability to understand and appreciate first-hand how it feels to be on the other side of the mediation table and most importantly, to empathize with my clients’ situation.

After successfully completing the forty-hour divorce mediation program given by The Center for Mediation and Training, I started Peacemaker Divorce Mediation with a mission to assist my clients in navigating the divorce process in the least resistive and most cost effective way possible. 

I am currently a Board Member of the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the highest professional standards of divorce mediation. To further advance my mediation skills, I continually attend meetings and participate in training seminars to keep up to date on the latest developments in law and mediation.  In addition to my divorce mediation practice, I practice as a civil litigation attorney for The Law Offices of David J. Sutton, P.C. located in Garden City, N.Y.

I graduated Hofstra University School of Law in 2000 at the top of my class where I was a member of the Hofstra Law Review.

A philanthropist at heart, I have dedicated much of my time to raising funds and awareness for autism as the executive director of a non-profit organization that raises funds to assist children with autism in obtaining treatments and therapies not otherwise covered by insurance.
