About me

I have been licensed to practice law for more than 14 years throughout California. My focus is on family law cases, including but not limited to:  divorce (contested and uncontested), paternity, child custody and visitation, spousal support/alimony, child support, property division, domestic violence restraining orders (both pursuing and defending the actions), step-parent adoptions/termination of parental rights, domestic partnerships, and prenuptial agreements. 


I believe in open communication with my clients and strive to keep them informed at all times.  During my representation, I endeavor to teach my clients whatever they need to protect themselves in the future and avoid the pitfalls so many others make in their divorces and their custody cases. Each client is important to me and I care about each and every one of them.
