About Me

My practice focuses exclusively on all areas of family law.  I compassionately assist clients as they navigate the complex legal system during challenging family transitions.  I am determined, flexible and creative in my approach to practicing law and I help clients stand up for themselves while being mindful of the importance of preserving important family relationships. I seek creative settlement solutions yet, when litigation becomes necessary, I provide strong and effective legal advocacy in the courtroom.
