practice is devoted exclusively to family law. I am

My expertise includes mediation services, collaborative
law and when necessary, litigation.

clients feel understood, heard, and respected. I work with my clients to
ensure that their case makes sense and ultimately allows them to plan
their future with confidence.
I will listen to you, help to assess your needs and goals, and assist
you throughout the process. I will keep you fully informed about the
progress of your case while presenting you with all the options
available at every stage.
