About Me

As a lawyer, I realize that most of my clients come to me through referrals.  It's important to me that every client understands their particular situation, and is comfortable enough with me to ask any question.  I know that while court may be an every day experience for me, it's not for most of my clients, and I try my best to take some of the fear out of the process.  Most importantly, I do my best to cut through the bull, and give advice that I would give to any family member.


Despite what some may think, divorce is not a win/lose endeavor.  The goal of every divorce is to find solutions that work for the family.  While there are times to take the gloves off and fight there also are times to step back and try and find common resolutions.


As a product of divorce, I understand the complexities of raising children during these difficult situations.  As a mother of three children, and three stepchildren, I understand that it's not always easy.  I run a child-centered practice.


In my spare time (who has spare time! ), I love traveling to new places with my kids, boating, reading, and spending time outside.  If you have any questions, feel free to drop me an email.
