About me

I have been a family law attorney since 1991, helping clients to resolve difficult divorce, paternity, prenuptial, and post-divorce situations, involving their children and their financial lives. I am trained in mediation and Collaborative Law and have negotiated hundreds of family law cases to successful agreements. When court is necessary, I will diligently advocate for my clients’ interests. As a member of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys and the American Academy of Assisted Reproductive Technology Attorneys, I truly enjoy helping clients build their families through adoption and ART (including surrogacy, egg donor, and sperm donor agreements).
