Personal Statement

My primary focus is providing you professional analysis with practical advice. Willing to listen and make sure your voice is heard and your interests are protected.​ I return calls and emails promptly; I make myself available. I stand by the advice I give and make sure you understand the process. I have the experience that counts. I concentrate my practice in the area of family law, including: dissolution of marriage (divorce); allocation of parenting responsibilities (child custody and visitation); paternity matters; child support; maintenance; and property allocation. Outside of family law, my educational background is in finance. I'm experienced in the difficult financial and property issues that may arise in divorce. Schedule your first meeting today to experience how all legal service should be. Making the decision to call an attorney is not easy. Most likely the idea of getting divorced or going to court for a legal issue is stressful. It is important to me to help people navigate through this tough period in their life. The legal system can be confusing and harsh; I am here to advocate for my client, make sure they understand what is going to happen and why, and let them make informed decisions. My goal is always to leave you with the best result possible.
