I graduated from law school in 2001 and worked in private practice for one year before moving into the non-profit world of legal services. The bulk of my career has been spent as the director of a pro bono program in Lexington, Kentucky. After nine years at that position, I decided it was time to realize my dream of opening my own solo practice in my hometown of Mt. Sterling.

If you are getting divorced and have children, part of the divorce agreement will involve determining where and with whom the children will live. A child custody lawyer can help you negotiate custody, either by agreement or in court. The custodial parent (the one the child lives with) earns the legal right to make decisions regarding the child's lifestyle, welfare, and education. Some parents opt for joint custody, which means children divide their time between both parents' homes, and parents share the right to make decisions on behalf of the children. If you as parents are unable to agree on child custody, a judge will decide for you.
