About me

After completing my service as a law clerk for two distinguished circuit court judges, I have focused my legal career in helping families that are stuggling with various other family law matters.  I have not only vigilanty represented individuals while navigating the emotional and legal processes they face, but I have assisted parties in mediating their disputes.  My experience permits me to guide parties through the process of:  divorce, separate maintenance, custody disputes, paternity actions, child support disputes, spousal support requests, property division, adoptions, marital settlement agreements, pre-nuptial agreements, and neglect proceedings.
