About Me

I have over 22 years of experience practicing Family Law.   I have had the unique experience of working for the courts as a law clerk to the President Judge of Family Court, as a staff attorney prosecuting child support cases and as Assistant Director of the Chester County Domestic Relations Office.  I have literally experienced "both sides" of the legal system up close.  I strive to share with my clients what I learned working inside the court system so that I may take the fear out of the legal process as much as possible.  I am resolution-oriented.  If it is possible to reasonably resolve the outstanding issues in a case, I believe that should be our first priority.  Sometimes, that is simply not possible on some or all of the issues.  In those cases which require court intervention, I am my client's voice in court.  To be an effective advocate, I believe in being well-prepared, firm and professional at all times.
