I concentrate almost exclusively on international family law, especially international child custody, and abduction issues.

I have handled numerous cases under the Hague Abduction Convention. I have consulted with clients and lawyers on many thousands of international child custody, relocation, and abduction cases. I usually work in collaboration with local counsel in New York, where I am admitted to practice, in other U.S. states in collaboration with local lawyers there, and in jurisdictions throughout the world, in collaboration with lawyers in such countries.

I lecture and write on these issues globally and I work with a network of excellent colleagues nationally and internationally. Since the first step in international family law cases is absolutely critical, I consult on these matters with clients and other lawyers around the world, through Zoom.

I speak English.
