About Me

I am a Cobb County divorce lawyer who  provides the highest level of legal services to clients in complex dissolution and custody cases. I am a tough advocate who works to protect the best interest of my clients and their children.  My practice emphasizes resolving contested financial issues and child custody issues.  My cases include executive divorces, divorces involving businesses, large estates, child support and maintenance (alimony).  I also negotiate prenuptial agreements.  I have substantial experience in mediation and litigation.
