Working as a Family Law Attorney in DC has been some of the most fulfilling legal work I have experienced since starting my career. Having experienced child abuse and neglect cases as well as private adoption cases first-hand (when I worked as a Judicial Law Clerk for the Honorable Juliet J. McKenna), I have come to appreciate all the legal and emotional dimensions of the process.
I also understand the intense struggles victims of domestic violence face in the District, and I am well equipped to represent victims of domestic violence in Civil Protection Orders and matters of child custody.
Currently, I primarily represent indigent parents/caretakers in child abuse and neglect proceedings in DC Superior Court as a member of the CCAN Panel (Counsel for Child Abuse & Neglect). In 2012, I was selected for membership on the CCAN panel, and I am appointed by DC Superior Court Judges to represent parents/caregivers at all stages of the proceedings - from the initial hearing through discovery, mediation, trial and disposition.
