About me

Each case is unique.  It's important to understand the best course of action, whether it's litigation or collaborative practice.  I have nearly 10 years of experience handling all types of family law cases.  Working closely with top divorce attorneys has allowed me to incorporate a high standard of ethics into my practice.  I truly care about my clients and strive to achieve the very best results for them.
