About me

After having worked with my mentor for eighteen years, I decided to open my own practice.  I focus on assisting families that are stuggling with various  family law matters.  I not only vigilanty represent individuals while navigating the emotional and legal processes they face, but I assist 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.
