About me

I decided to become an attorney because I personally understand people's problems when dealing with the legal system.  As a lawyer, I know what my clients need because I have stood where they are standing.  As a second generation lawyer, and a divorced single mother, I have experience on both sides of the system.  This experience provides me with insight and understanding that many attorneys may never experience. My goal is to share my experience with my clients to help them transition past their legal issues and move on toward a brighter future.
