    A 1982 graduate of The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Ms. Rosenthal obtained her Juris Doctor in 1987 from Yeshiva University Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York. In 1989, the New York State Bar Association admitted her to practice, and Ms. Rosenthal has concentrated solely on family law throughout her entire career.
