About Me

I have wanted to be an attorney since the days of Perry Mason.  I got that chance to go to Law School when my two oldest sons were in college and my youngest son was in eighth grade.  I did not know what kind of law I wanted to practice, even after passing the California Bar Exam.  I think Family Law came to me and it has been my calling since 1996.  While waiting for my Bar results, I became a Domestic Violence Counselor and I have continued to use that training in my law practice as well as in my volunteer life.


 


I was blessed to be brought up in a family that emphasized "giving back" instead of "getting stuff" and that has enriched my life ten fold.  I love to travel and enjoy new worlds.  I lived in Brazil for four years in the 70's and returned just two years ago for the first time in over 30 years.  I was amazed at the changes in Rio de Janeiro.  More amazing is the fact that I could still commucate in Portuguese.


 


I continue to learn as much as I can about Mediation and Collaborative Law.  This is a gift to myself and to my clients.  I am convinced that the "no court" approach to family issues is in the best interests of the family and I am proud to help facilitate resolution instead of litigation.
