About Me

I'm a father of two great kids.  I've been through divorce and know the heartache, frustration, and uncertainty that goes along with the process.  My own experience has informed me and provided perspective into my clients' lives and situations.  I hope you don't need me ... but if you do need me, you really need me, because at that point things aren't going to get resolved without the intervention of the court. 

If you're in that situation, I'd be honored to help you get to the other side and protect your children and your finances.  Getting you a postive resolution is my duty.
