About Me

I have been an attorney for almost 30 years, dedicating my career to the pursuit of justice for my clients, whether they are indigent defendants facing years in prison,or even the death penalty, or families in distress facing separation, divorce and alienation from loved ones.


I had the privilege of being appointed to serve as a Magistrate Judge in Fulton Superior Court in 2011. My skills and experience as a judge have enhanced my understanding of effective courtroom advocacy.


I have been an active volunteer in my community, as well, serving on the Board of Education and helping in myriad ways with my children's schools, as well as serving in leadership roles with Girl Scouts and the State Bar of Georgia HS Mock Trial program.
