About Me

Divorce. Custody. Visitation. Child Support. Relocation. Paternity. Domestic Violence.
These are words that no one wants to hear. But if these are issues you must deal with right now, it is easier and wiser to face them with a compassionate and experienced family law attorney at your side. My goal is to provide my clients with diligent and supportive legal guidance during what may be a very trying time in their lives.
