About Me

I love what I do. I care so much about making a difference for the clients I have. My passions in the community extend to my work on the Holocaust Commission. If you ever get the chance to visit the UJF website you can learn about our very active Commission here in Tidewater. We are so fortunate to work with some survivors and put on educational presentations called, "What We Carry" to different organizations in the community.

    I endorse this lawyer. She is unbelievably smart, incredibly tenacious, extremely compassionate, understanding, and she doesn't take any sh*t from anybody. Opponents are literally afraid of her.
