About me

I completed my business education and worked in corporate financial positions for 10 years before attending law school.   I graduated law school with honors and was a member of the law review.  I joined a large law firm and was trained in complex litigation, including family law matters.  In 1997 I opened my own office focusing on divorce and other family law matters.  My cases are always high stakes--my client's financial security or the welfare of their children.  I work hard to resolve cases out of court, but when court is necessary I argue vigorously for my clients.
