About Me

I work for a small aggressive and progressive firm dedicated to providing informative and respectful legal representation to clients facing criminal law issues or family law issues.  


I have dedicated my practice to family law issues like custody, divorce, child support, and parenting time.  I am a dedicated working mother and I understand the various concerns facing families generally during tough emotional times.  I also understand that each family has different needs.


I currently serve as the Chair of the Board for WISE, a local non-profit organization dedicated to ending domestic violence.  I have completed a leadership course in my area and regularly attend seminars and participate in list serves to keep updated on the constantly changing law.
