Child custody is a focus of my practice.    It came hard but the decision was easy.  Just as I commenced practicing my two younger children were abducted.  I was, with the assistance and support of the police, the District Attorney, the Federal prosecutor issuing a warrant, the FBI and the immigration police in Mexico, I was able to retrieve them.  Once back, I was advised by a police department Sergeant Detective to expect to be accused of child abuse when the Mother returned; she did return and his prediction was accurate.  That all occurred in 1992.  It etched in my so my practice everything you've ever thought about concerning your children and your participation in fully parenting them and fully participating in their lives.  It is for me the ultimate responsibility I have, representing and guiding parents in custody matters, during and after separation and divorce- it is the prime purpose of my practice.
