About Me

My clients come to me for help with their legal issues. They may just want advice or they may want me to represent them in their divorce or their fight over child custody, child support, guardianship or arguments over contracts or some other kind of dispute. My goal is to help them resolve the problem in a way that doesn't drain their pocketbooks. My first consultation is free, and I will spend as much time as needed with my clients to make sure they understand what is heppening to them, and what they can do successfully manage the situation. I use the latest technology to maximize my client participation in and understanding of the the legal process.
