I have been practicing Family Law in Naples/Fort Myers since 1997. I have focused a substantial part of my practice working with victims of Domestic Violence. Since I began working with the Shelter for Abused Women and Children in 1995, I have dedicated myself to assisting victims of Domestic Violence through the legal system.
I have significant trial experience in all aspects of divorces, including, child custody disputes, alimony, child support, and relocation.
I have also done substantial work with families seeking guardianships for loved one with developmental disabilities or other incapacities.
I have been married since 1997 to Dan Cavanaugh, who works with me practicing in the areas of Criminal Law and Personal Injury. We have two children in Collier County Public Schools. We love watching our daughter run in 5k races and our son play soccer.
