    About Me

    Despite all the bad lawyer jokes there are out there, I became a lawyer because I wanted to help people.  I know that divorce can be one of the worst times in a person's life.  With that in mind, I try to help my clients formulate solutions so that they and their families can start to move on and create a new chapter in their lives.
