About Me

I have practiced in the area of domestic relations law for more than 15 years and during this time have helped hundreds of clients with their family law matters.   I take pride in my work and take seriously the fact that most family law clients have little if any experince with the court system.  As a result, I try to represent the civil justice system in as positive a manner as possible.   This means being masterful of the facts of each case, forming reasonable opinions regarding the application of the law to those facts,  promptly addressing client concerns,  moving matters along without unnecessary delay or expense and being candid with clients regarding expectations, outcomes, timeframes and costs.  


 


When not practicing law, I enjoy watching baseball, reading and travel. I am also an avid music fan and enjoy spending time with my husband and family.
