News & Events


April 21, 2009.  In 2004, when I set off on my adventure to hang out my shingle and open my own law practice, I never dreamed how fulfilling my professional life would become.  I left law firm life to have a more rewarding career and to keep that delicate balance between professional life and family life.  Five years later, I have settled into my "new" office at 44 Stelton Road (Suite 210) and enjoy the life I have built.  I have found out that the office is located in an old school building once known as the New Market School.  When I walk through the halls I imagine what life would have been like back then when this was a school.  You can still see the gym!  I have some great neighbors in the United States Post Office, financial planners, importers, technical support, insurance agents and real estate brokers.  The building is full of small businesses, much like my own, where folks are walking the fine line between making it and giving up.  Please support your small local businesses, whether it is your local attorney or accountant, real estate agent or insurance agent, financial planner or dry cleaner.  Piscataway has a plethora of small business owners who offer great professional services.  As a Mom and a Professional I have come to learn that there is a way to balance family and work life, and enjoy it as well.  I enjoy meeting and chatting with my clients, stop by my office at 44 Stelton Road in the New Market School Building.
