About Me


Family Law Attorney who believes that each client deserves individualized attention. Prior to attending law school, I taught elementary school and assisted women in a work release facility. My clients benefit from my passion for justice, knowledge of the law, as well as my life experiences and practical approach.


I provide my clients with aggressive representation. I also offer clients choices in how they wish to have their cases handled. I have been trained in mediation and collaborative law, which are alternative dispute resolution models that give parties the option of resolving problems without involving the courts. I am also a trained Parent Coordinator and can assist in high conflict child custody cases.


 


Practice areas: Divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, spousal support, protection from abuse, prenuptial agreements, separation agreements, juvenile matters, dependency matters, and appeals.


 


Services: Litigation, Mediation, Parent Coordination, Collaborative Law
