I supervise a talented team of attorneys who practice in the Northeast Region of Lydecker Diaz, including the New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania offices. The attorneys in my office are comprised of former educators, prosecutors, law clerks to state and federal judges and insurance professionals.

My legal practice focuses on the defense of claims against professionals (E&O, A&B, LPL or MPL), directors and officers (D&O) and against employers (EPL). I also represent design professionals (A&E) and other real estate professionals, including managing agents, appraisers, title agents, condo and co-op boards and developers in various disputes. On behalf of construction owners and managers, I defend claims prosecuted by injured workers brought pursuant to the New York Labor Law.

I also represent clients on other types of discrimination claims, including alleged civil rights violations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act.

I defend environmental cases, involving mold, asbestos and ground contamination.

I represent public and private educators in breach of contract, employment, bullying, failing to promote and in due process matters.

I have had election, stock redemption, auction, foreclosure/ sheriff sale, false arrest, prosecutorial misconduct disputes.

I have been on the New York Metro Super Lawyers list from 2011-present.
