About Me

Each one my clients deal with me personally; and, we will discuss what options are best for you. You always know not only the status of your case, but why we are doing what we are strategically.


 


I handle all domestic/family cases and most criminal cases. Most of the work I do undertake is domestic related.  I handle every facet of domestic cases, including, but not limited to, Motion practice, Oral Advocacy, Mediations/Settlement, and Trial practice.  I also practice before the Juvenile Court when the case requires it.  On the criminal side of my practice, I handle DUI cases and most misdemeanor cases.
