About me

I choose to become a lawyer to do Social Justice and try to make this world a better place.  I grew up as with a Hippie mentality of peace, brotherhood and equality and have continually strived to make a positive contribution to mankind.  Every individual is entitled to the same level of respect, kindness and empathy.  I will treat all my clients and collegues just that way.  I initially was in the health care field and have continued my "Do No Harm" approach to all life situations.  This is crucial when practicing Family and Divorce Law, as the Family unit will have to continue long after my involvement.  The Children are usually the innocents in Family Court and Divorce and must be protected.  I will zealously and aggressively defend my clients, supporting their positions and educating them about the entire Court process. I will be compassionate and understanding as I assist each client through the trauma and stress of their Family Court or Divorce proceeding.
