About Me

I have been practicing family law with my father and other Hofheimer Family Law Firm attorneys since 1999. I was a single mother for most of my son's childhood, so I have a first-hand understanding of the challenges that many of my clients face.


When I am not busy advocating for my clients, I like to bodysurf, watch Supercross and equestrian sports, spend time with my family, and listen to Ani Difranco.
