About Me

I have been practicing family law on a full time basis since 1998. I have represented clients in Johnson and Leavenworth Counties, Kansas; and Clay, Jackson and Platte Counties, Missouri [just to name a few].


I have won appellate cases, and have spoken at the Missouri Judicial College in regard to dividing retirement plans in a divorce.


I have won one of the first cases in Missouri for third party visitation rights for a step-father in a paternity case.


I am committed to providing excellent legal services in a cost efficient manner, and strive to achieve all of my client's goals.


I hope to work with you.
