About me


        I believe that when helping families in the midst of divorce, it is important to keep our focus on the future and to behave in a way that will allow them to maintain the best family relationships possible.

    I endorse this lawyer, for all matters but particularly for the collaborative divorce process. Susan and I have successfully concluded a collaborative divorce and Susan's patient, intelligent contributions to the process helped to insure our success. In addition, as President of the Collaborative Law Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania, Susan did an excellent job of working toward our goal of educating the public and the legal community about the collaborative process.
