About me

I have been practicing  Family Law exclusively for 13 years in the state of Delaware.  After graduating from Washington & Jefferson College in 1998, I attended Villanova University School of Law.  After graduating from Villanova, I clerked for the Honorable William L. Chapman and the Honorable Alison Whitmer Tumas, State of Delaware Family Court.  I entered private practice in 2002 with Rahaim & Saints and became a Partner of the firm in 2007.  Beginning in 2007, I managed the Family Law Department at Rahaim & Saints and acted in that capacity until my departure in April 2013 when I joined MacElree Harvey.  I work out of the Centreville, Delaware office which is close to my home.


            I am married and have a three year old daughter who is looking forward to attending Kindergarten in September.  Outside of spending time with my family, I love to read, cook and spend time at the beach.  I am looking forward to our first family trip to Disney World in the Spring!

    I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Crossley contacted my law practice to refer a client. I sincerely appreciated not only the referral but the professionalism she displayed. Ms. Crossley was able to provide me with a brief, yet concise, background of the matter while simultaneously explaining the jurisdictional roadblocks she anticipated in her home state of Delaware. It is truly an honor to work with professional and knowledgeable attorneys both intrastate and interstate. I would highly recommend her services!
