She is compassinate, agressive, and a resource to have on the side of anyone going thorugh a tough family law issue. Most of her clients come to her after going through a prior counsel who could not reach results due to the litigous nature of the case and she pushes the matter toward resolve to brings peace back into her client's lives. Result oriented and uncompromising with a level of compassion is who she is.
