About Me

I became a lawyer as a second career, in my mid-30s, because I thought the legal profession would give me the best opportunity to help people at a pivotal point in their life.  Before going to law school, I was a Medical Technologist and worked in the diagnostic laboratories of various hospitals and doctors offices in Florida and Georgia.  


I am the only lawyer in my law firm, and that will never change. I enjoy keeping my practice small because it allows me to get to know my clients needs and goals and work together, as a team, to accomplish those needs and goals.  


I keep my office hours flexible to allow you to keep doing what is most important - spending time with your family and working.  


I'm here to help.  I look forward to working with you.
