About Me

Having practiced law for over 38 years and being involved in over a 1000 divorce related cases, I know how stressful and agonizing it is to go through a divorce.  I'm dedicated to provide you with my best services to resolve your case as quickly and inexpensively as possible.  Let my experience of practicing before local and state judges, including the Indiana Surpreme Court work for you.
