About Me

I've been a lawyer for over 20 years now, and I can honestly say that for the most part, I'm not a big fan of how lawyers treat their clients, especially when it comes to fees. They bait them with the promise of low fees, only to purposely drag cases on and bill for time that should've never been incurred in the first place. Lawyers should get paid for their work, but fair is fair.
Thumbtack gives you the option of having your clients post reviews. Take a look at mine. Those are all real people who I have helped recently, and I can do the same for you.

I guess joining Thumbtack could be considered advertising, but prior to joining Thumbtack I have never advertised in any internet, no newspaper, no radio, not even the yellow pages. 100% of my work came from referrals from other other happy clients, and it still does. This is because I'm honest, I charge a reasonable fee, I work hard, and I get great results.

While I can never guarantee those results, I'm confident that you'll be happy with my work.

I can take you on as a full-time client and charge a reasonable hourly rate, or I can do affordable flat-fee projects, like a representing you at a single court appearance, or preparing a specific document for you. This is called "limited scope" representation, and I often do this for clients who are on a budget and only need an attorney for a limited issue (like a one-time court appearance). This alone can save you thousands of dollars in legal fees.

I've been handling all areas of FAMILY LAW since 1994, including:

• General Family Law
• Divorce/Dissolution/Annulment/Legal Separation
• Child Custody and Visitation
• Spousal Support (Alimony)
• Child Support
• Modification of Support, Visitation, or Custody
• Restraining Orders
• Property Division
• Pension Division
• Move-Away Requests
• Document Preparation or Review
• Grandparent Rights
• Father's Rights
• Mediation
• Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO's)
• Nuptial Agreements.....

Please contact me if you have any of these issues. My staff and I will work extra hard to make you happy.
