About Me

I believe in helping people solve their legal problems. I help them explore respectful solutions for what is often a difficult and dark time in a person's life.  

I also believe strongly that to work well together, there has to be a good attorney-client fit in goals, expectations and attitudes. My job is to help you navigate the legal minefield and lead you safely to the other side but your job is to give me the information and tools I need to know about your particular needs and wants in your future so you can make informed decisions about your case.

Whether it be a family law case, an adoption, an estate plan, probate or guardianship, all families and dynamics are different. There are no "cookie cutter" approaches. Each case deserves individual attention and care to give it the optimal outcome.
