About Me

I began my practice in law as a defense attorney in the field of Medical Malpractice. I defended doctors. My training was in civil litigation that heavily relies upon evidence, discovery and trial. I took those skills and realized my passion for family law. I then transistioned in a Family Law Attorney over the next few years until my practice was 100%. My total focus and specialization is in Family Law. My passion is Family law and obtaining a ruling that is fair and equitable to my clients.
