I have been a practicing attorney for approximately nine (9) years, and I am a partner in the firm of Foster, Vandenburgh & Riyaz, LLP. I have been engaged in extensive litigation in connection with matrimonial matters in both the Supreme Court and Family Court of the Counties of Suffolk and Nassau, as well as Appellate Practice in the Second Department.  I am able to apply my legal skills and knowledge to accomplish the goals of any entity that I work for on any complex legal issue.

I graduated from Stony Brook University with concentrations in Computer Science, Biology and Anthropology. Thereafter, I received my Juris Doctor from Albany Law School of Union University in 2002. While attending Albany Law School, I was a staff editor for the Environmental Outlook Journal, an interdisciplinary journal, and participated extensively in the Student Litigation Clinic, and Moot Court Tournaments.

I am fluent in Urdu & Hindi, and I have a moderate understanding of Spanish and Punjabi.
