Pam is known as being a straight-talking, formidable negotiator. She is equally well-known, however, for recognizing when a case, be it a complex financial case or a highly charged custody cases, cannot be settled, and then skillfully preparing and trying it to conclusion.
She is an active member of several prominent bar associations, in which she has held various leadership roles. She is the current Chair of the Family Law Section of the New York State Bar Association, and a former Chair of the Matrimonial Law Committee of the New York City Bar Association. She is a member of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, and has served on that organization’s Board of Managers for the New York Chapter. She is a past member of the City Bar’s Judiciary Committee and Justice Sharon S. Townsend’s state-wide Matrimonial Practice Advisory Committee. Pam also has served the legal community for many years by frequently lecturing to the bench and bar on family law issues.
Unrelated to her professional practice, Pam is a committed volunteer who has served on the boards of several community service organizations and schools. At present, she sits on the Board of the Women's Housing and Economic Development Corp. (WHEDCO) in the Bronx and the Board of Governors of The Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School in Brooklyn. She is a past board member of the Family Services of Westchester, Pelham Family Services (President 2000-2001), Pelham Children's Center, the Pelham Education Foundation and Angela House, Inc. (a transitional residence for homeless mothers and their children that was located in the Bronx), and the United Way of Pelham.
Pam is rated "AV" (the highest rating for both competence and ethics) by Martindale-Hubbell. Since 2003 she has been listed in the “Best Lawyers in America” (Woodward/White). Since 2006 she has been recognized in New York Super Lawyers (Law & Politics) as one of NYC's top 100 lawyers in all categories and as one of the City's top 50 female lawyers.
