About Me

Throughout my life I have served in the school systems, womeh lawyer's group, politics, and various civic groups.   My interests include photography and motorcycles.  I live in Grand Rapids, MI with my husband. 


I have worked in the fields of criminal law and family law.   I have extensive trial practice from my years in District Court on the misdemeanor defense contract and as a contract prosecutor for the City of Kalamazoo.  I devote my law practice to Family Law matters.  I am licensed to practice law in Michigan and before the United States Supreme Court.


If you are contemplating a divorce, I am an excellent person to discuss the pros and cons of such a move.  There are ways to put yourself in a better position before filing.  I offer a consulation as a way of helping you make sound decisons.
