About me

Languages: Speaks Assyrian (Not on the list of languages)

Legal matters related to family law can have a very personal effect on the people they concern. My philosophy is to provide the highest quality of legal services to all my clients going through any legal conflict and to provide knowledge guidance, advice and advocacy. Effective representation for any legal issue is a top priority. I work together with my clients to provide sound legal advice based on thorough legal research and experience so that my clients can make the best informed decisions about their family, life, and future. I will often use my experience with alternative dispute resolution methods to help my clients obtain the best solutions, while minimizing financial and emotional expense. However, if litigation is necessary, rest assured that I will actively and aggressively seek a favorable resolution for my clients in court. My belief is that my clients need to be actively involved in their cases, as such, I am always available to my clients and I strive to keep each and every client advised on every aspect of their case.
