Admitted to the New York State Bar in 1992, Ms. Horowitz has been practicing since then with a specialty in all aspects of matrimonial and family law. After spending many years litigating, Ms. Horowitz was convinced that there was a less adversarial way to resolve matrimonial matters. To that end, in 2008 she received training in mediation and collaborative divorce through the New York State Office of the Court Administration’s ADR and Court Improvement Program, and now collaborative divorce and divorce mediation are an integral part of her practice.
