David appreciates that a divorce can be one of the most difficult periods in a client’s life and provides compassionate representation by assisting clients to identify and prioritize the issues that are most important to their cases. He also understands that clear and concise counsel is necessary to obtain a resolution that meets each client’s individual needs.

David’s practice is devoted solely to family law and he appears regularly before the Family Part in Mercer, Middlesex, Hunterdon, Somerset, and Burlington counties. David is an advocate for reaching amicable resolutions to family law disputes because he understands the importance for clients to have control over the resolution of their case, and is trained in alternative dispute resolution methods such as collaborative divorce. However, he understands that litigation is sometimes the only option, and has significant courtroom and litigation experience arguing a wide range of family law issues, such as the equitable distribution and division of corporate benefits (stock units, stock options, and other highly compensated employee awards). David also has extensive experience with alimony awards, cohabitation, modification of support awards, and a variety of custody related issues.


Practice Area Highlight:Litigation

David  understands that litigating a divorce requires a unique approach beginning early in each case. He prepares for litigation by ensuring that each case has the proper evidence, which will be admissible at trial and understands how to ensure that critical information for each case is properly documented and presented to the trial judge.  He also has the experience to evaluate when expert testimony will be necessary in litigation, and has significant experience working with experts and cross-examining experts on financial issues such as business valuations, as well as custodial issues.  David has successfully litigated complex and high net worth divorces, alimony and child support disputes, custody disputes, relocation issues, business valuation issues, equity award compensation, college contribution and equitable distribution matters in the Family Part. Due to this experience, David recognizes that positions taken for settlement purposes may no longer be appropriate when litigation becomes inevitable, and will counsel clients when positions should change and settlement strategies should be re-evaluated.

Professional Background

David is admitted to the bar in the State of New Jersey and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 

He regularly serves as a Matrimonial Early Settlement Panelist for the Matrimonial Early Settlement Program in Mercer County and Burlington County.

Panelists are selected by the Presiding Judge of the Family Part in each county and make recommendations on how equitable distribution, child support and alimony should be resolved after reviewing the facts presented in each case. Panelists must be experienced family law attorneys.
