About me

I have six children ranging in age from 14 to 32.  I have one grandbaby.  I practice law full time with my husband.  Our law practice is in the areas of bankruptcy, social security disability, domestic law (divorce, child custody), criminal and general practice, wills and deeds, unlawful detainers, incorporations and so forth.  My motto and my goal in life is to make someone else's life easier every day.

    I endorse Lois without hesitation. She is one of the most determined, dedicated lawyers I have ever known. She will not rest until her clients are satisfied and their cases are well prepared. If I were ever faced with a criminal defense matter, she is the lawyer I would hire. In all aspects and accounts, she is truly outstanding.
