About me

I believe in using the legal system to provide justice for my clients.   For me, it is the positive outcome for my client that is the most rewarding aspect of practicing law. That is why I have decided to make my practice affordable and available to most.  My philosphy is to provide a high quality representation at a reasonable cost.  I do not believe that a divorce or a family law matter should cost an arm and a leg, and leave my client with little or nothing at the end..  If I earn more than what is left for my client at end of the case, then I have not done my job effectively.


I personally handle all my cases, and communicate with my clients.  I do not take on more cases than I can handle and it is very common that I decline cases becasue I already have reached my limit. 


Keeping my client's interst above all is my priority.  You can find more information about me and my firm at  Thank you for your interest, and I look forward to meeting you in person.
