About Me

I counsel people all the time, don’t spend your money on an expensive divorce; rather, save it for your children’s college fund or for your own next chapter.  I have been telling that to clients that for over 25 years.


 


My goal is to help you go through the divorce process as effortlessly, painlessly and cost effectively as possible.
