About Me

I have been practicing family law for over 18 years, working with individuals who are facing some of the most difficult life transitions in divorce/separation, custody matters and the financial aspects of support and property division.  My practice includes Chesterfield, Henrico, Richmond, Goochland, Hanover, and other areas around central  Virginia. Family law has been an extremely rewarding practice of law and I am honored to be able to help our clients throughout the metropolitan Richmond area.  *Fellow, American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.*
