About me

Hello everyone! I am an attorney who has been practicing almost exclusively family law for over eight years with a lot of success and happy clients. I love what I do, I am informal and a lot of people find court process a lot less painful with me right by there side every step of the way. I am always accessible and I love helping people. As a mother myself, I am very sensitive to issues of children of both fathers and mothers and can articulate your position in a manner that is strong, coherent, persuasive and pleasing to the court. I invite you to send me an email so we can chat about your issues and how I may be able to help!
