About Me

I am a trained litigator and mediator focusing primarily on divorce and custody cases, although I do sometimes handle other types of cases.  I began my legal career as a judicial law clerk working in the Probate and Family Courts where I worked with judges in five counties for a period of two years.  Every case is unique, and I invite you to make an appointment to discuss the issues that bring you to this page.  I am available to provide assistance with single issues or a single court date, to coordinate and oversee the management of many legal issues and cases, to mediate some or all of a case, or to simply litigate a case from start to finish.
