About me

My profession is my passion. I didn't end up practicing family law by mistake or coincidence. I went to law school so that I could help people with divorce and custody matters, and that remains my goal today. As Partner of the firm, I value having a choice in the cases and clients which we accept. I invite you to read the reviews written by our former clients.
