About Me

I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Florida since 1992. Although my focus was initially primarily criminal defense, my practice quickly shifted to family law. I have been practicing primarily family law for most of my legal career.


My practice mostly involves divorce cases including, but not limited to, issues concerning children, parenting and support, spousal support issues, property distribution and business valuations. I also handle the occasional dependency action and adoption.


I have a close-nit family and have been happily married, since 2001, to my Husband, John. I have one child, Gabriella, who is 8.
