About Me

To achieve the best possible results for my family law clients, I work closely with them using a measured approach tailored to their needs and goals. I am sensitive to the devastating impact that separation and divorce can have on the family unit. In a time of high emotions I strives to calm tensions. I help my clients identify reasonable goals, but also always prepared to defend those goals in court when necessary.


I concentrate my practice in the areas of custody, divorce, separation and pre- and post-nuptial agreements. I have successfully litigated third-party custody cases and have negotiated challenging custody matters involving one parent with significant mental health issues.
