About me

Experience has taught me that when facing legal issues, disputes  and life transitions, such as divorce or relocating a residence, clients need individualized and targeted advice aimed at addressing their unique legal concerns.  My firm offers one-on-one personalized attention and advice to clients, not a "one-size fits all" approach.  As an experience litigator, mediator and Collaborative Professional, I work with my clients from the outset of presentation, not only to find the best solutions for their unique concerns, but to help them find the most appropriate legal process to resolve the problem at hand   .
