About Me

Beyond all else, I have great respect for  those who maintain the ethical and professional  integrity  of the Bar, the judiciary, and the judicial system.  By striving to uphold integrity within the profession, we are better able to serve our clients.  Each day attorneys are faced with ethical and moral decisions which can greatly impact  the lives of our clients and those with whom we encounter within the court system.  By embracing our responsibility to practice ethically, we strengthen and preserve the character and respect of the profession and the practice of law.  Ultimately, all those whose lives we touch are enriched because we treat our clients and colleagues with the dignity and respect they so deserve.

  • Rebecca Louise Hamilton

    I have known Deb for over a decade. She is one of the most hard working attorneys I have ever met. She is very detail oriented and meticulous with her cases. She puts her heart into her work and any client who hires her can rest assured she will provide the highest quality representation.

  • Brandon James Huffman

    I endorse Deborah whole-heartedly. Deborah and I worked as opposing counsel on a case wherein all parties were very, very angry. In spite of that, Deborah and I were always able to have reasoned, professional conversation about the case. Ultimately, we were able to resolve our matter. I wish all opposing counsel were as professional.
