About me

After 11 years of practicing family law I have decided to go "litigation sober". I am committed to helping my clients resolve their family conflicts outside of the courthouse because the litigation process is so destructive to famlies. Resolving family conflict outside of court does not mean everyone is getting along, it means that everyone involved:


a.   Values retaining control over their major life decisions and want to avoid having strangers (judges) make their life decisions for them.


b.  Want to preserve what assets they have for themselves and their loved one rather than losing them in a lengthy divorce process that only enriches the attorneys


c.  Want to minimize stress and anxiety associated with resolving family conflicts


Fighting in court is NOT the only option and it is my professional mission to educate everyone I can about those other options.
