About me

My practice is primarily family law with an emphasis on separation, divorce, child custody and complex property including closely held business issues. My emphasis is negotiation where possible and litigation, as a last resort, where necessary.

I also provide dispute resolution services (limited to negotiation, mediation and arbitration) for closely held business disputes.


I handle WA, interstate and international cases.


I am a member of several Bar Associations and Sections amongst which are the following: KCBA Family Law section, Chair of the International Law section for KCBA, Vice Chair ABA International Family Law section, KCBA Collaborative Law Section.


My goal  is to reduce stress and expense to the parties  as much as possible and to explore all avenues to defuse conflict and  reduce litigation.


I provide mediation,arbitration,collaborative law,cooperative law and litigation services to clients.


I am a member of the WA State, District of Columbia, Minnesota Bars, and a member of the Bar of England and Wales.
