About Me

As a family law attorney, I strive to make the often harrowing experiences associated with family law as effortless as possible for my clients, and for their families. I recognize the emotional drain and complexities involved with family related matters. I am committed to assisting my clients through this difficult time, not only as an advisor and an advocate, but also as a cheerleader, a soothing voice, and even a friend. To be able to help my clients through this difficult period, to show them that their lives are not over, that their children will continue to thrive, particularly with their continued love and support, these are the things that drive me in my family law practice.


As an immigration attorney, I find immense satisfaction in helping good people to navigate through what can often appear to be an extremely frustrating and time consuming process.  Through advice, education and guidance, it is my privilege to help to empower individuals and families as they confront, and often find success within, a system which I strive to make a bit less daunting.
