About Me

As a family law attorney, much of my work is with people going through a divorce, or otherwise seeking help with ending a relationship.  I try to assist my divorce clients with an eye towards sustainability and long-term wellbeing.  In other words: I want to help you figure out not only how to bring one chapter of your life to a close, but how to begin the next one.

In addition to my divorce practice, I am interested in working with individuals and families in the early stages of relationships.  There is a lot of space for creative and intentional work in constructing and defining family structures going in.  Everyone’s family is different, and I am a big believer in broad and inclusive interpretations of what family means.  Many of us identify strongly with the notion of investing in a family of choice, and I want to support that in any way I can.

Regardless of why you come to see me, I will listen without judgment to where you’ve been, what you’ve done, and how you’d like things to go.   I will be honest with you about what I think is possible, what I think is likely, and what I think is wise.  I will strive to understand your needs.  Most importantly, I will do my utmost to work with you and think creatively about how we can move you from wherever you are now to wherever you want to be.

    What else can I say but that Nate rocks. One of the most intelligent people I have ever met and I would hate to ever face him in court. You definitely want him on your side and not against you.

    When given the opportunity to bring another lawyer into my firm, I sought out Nathan and invited him aboard. Having previously supervised his clinical work in a law school setting, I thought he would be a great fit for the work we do - excellent family law representation for people who are going through the most difficult times of their lives. Nathan is an excellent attorney and advocate, and I am proud to work beside him.
