Sally's practice focuses on Family Law, primarily dealing with divorce issues such as child custody, child support and maintenance. Her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Missouri – St. Louis provided her with the additional tools and counseling skills necessary to understand and deal with the unique emotional demands inherent in a family law practice.
She emphasizes the importance of settlement and works hard to assist her clients in reaching agreement on all issues because she strongly believes this alleviates much of the stress brought on by court appearances and trial. She further believes that an amicable divorce is always preferable, especially when there are children, and increases the chance of harmonious co-parenting in the future. Her compassion and empathy helps to heal her clients who often come to her in a highly emotional state. She resolves their cases as quickly as possible to reduce trauma to the family members. If this is not possible, she can and will aggressively represent her clients at trial.
Additionally, Sally handles Wills, Trusts and Probate Administration in St. Louis County, City, and the surrounding counties. She also works in traffic and criminal state and municipal matters such as possession of marijuana, DWI, and traffic tickets.
Sally gives back to the community through her mentoring of paralegal and law students as well as high school students who are interested in pursuing a legal career.
