Pearl River, New York

Maureen joined Johnson and Cohen in 2009 and has focused her practice exclusively in matrimonial and family law since that time.  Maureen’s experience includes handling custody, support, complex equitable distribution matters, and prenuptial agreements, among other family law matters. Maureen is a passionate advocate for her clients, protecting their rights in all aspects of their litigation. Her main goal is to reach a settlement even in the most acrimonious situations, however, she remains prepared to litigate when necessary. Maureen routinely appears in Supreme and Family Courts in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess, Orange, Bronx and New York counties representing clients in pretrial, trial and enforcement proceedings, as well as in the Appellate Division, First and Second Departments. 

Maureen is a member of several bar associations, including the New York State Bar Association, where she serves on the Executive Committee of the Family Law Section as a co-chair of the Continuing Legal Education Committee, and the Westchester County Bar Association, where she serves as the Secretary of the Domestic Relations and Family Law Section, and previously served as the co-chair of the Section’s CLE committee.  Maureen has frequently lectured at and prepared written materials for continuing legal education seminars sponsored by the Westchester County Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association.

Maureen earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Roger Williams University in 2005, graduating summa cum laude, and her Juris Doctor from Fordham University School of Law in 2009, where she also received the Archibald R. Murray Public Service Award. While attending Fordham, Maureen participated in an internship with the Family Court Legal Program, run by the Women's Justice Center at Pace University Law School.
