About Me

I concentrate my practice in the area of family law. I have been practicing for over 30 years, 27 of them in Wisconsin. In addition to advocating for parties, I an appointed Guardian ad Litem for children in custody cases. I am also a trained mediator and am trained as a collaborative attorney. Each case is unique, requiring problem solving skills. I understand that a family law matter is the most personal and emotionally difficult situation for a client and strive always to be aware of this in my representation while at the same time acting as a true legal counselor.
