I have worked almost exclusively in the area of family law for over ten years throughout the state of Michigan. I now practice primarily in Western Michigan, with a continued commitment to helping individuals and families traverse through the family courts or facilitate private settlements related to family law issues. Specifically, my practice focuses on domestic relations law including divorce, paternity, child custody, child support, and other family law matters. I am experienced litigator, but also committed to alternative dispute resolution, particularly collaborative law, as a preferred means to resolving family disputes.
Committed to the belief that family law cases should be decided by and between the families, I am a member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Michigan and the International Academy of Collaborative Practitioners as well as a founding member of the Collaborative Practitioners of Greater Kalamazoo, whose website can be found at www.collabdivkzoo.com.
