About me

We are a small firm, so your case gets personalized attention and your call will be returned.   Your case is important to me and I will take your call if I am able to take it.  If I can't we will set an appointment as quickly as possible for that call.  I focus on divorce and family law issues, issues with children including child support modification and divorce.  We return calls within 24 hours, so you never have to wonder if your call will be returned.  We provide personal assistance in difficult times of life.


 


While email is not a secure method of communication to talk about a specific case, please feel free to contact us via email to set an appointment or call today.
