A graduate of Harvard College and UCLA School of Law and a proud New Yorker, Ms. Borer enjoys the challenge of litigation, and views mediation as a desirable alternative to litigation in many cases.

Her article Prenuptial Agreements: The Ultimate Symbol of Love? appeared in The Huffington Post on August 22, 2014, and a modified version appeared in the November 2014 New York County Lawyer. Her article Marriage, Divorce, and Law School Loan Debt appeared in the New York State Bar Association Young Lawyers Section electronic newsletter in November 2019.
Ms. Borer is an adjunct professor at Fordham University School of Law, where she teaches Communication Pragmatics, and at John Jay College, where she teaches ethics and philosophy of law.
Since 2019, she has assisted low-income parties with uncontested divorces and Family Court matters as a volunteer in the New York State Unified Court System's Access to Justice Program. For her work in that capacity, she received two Certificates of Distinguished Service.
