About me

I currently handle cases involving Landlord/tenant and housing issues; Family law (Divorce, paternity, child support/custody, and restraining orders); personal injury and Discrimination cases.


After spending 20 years advocating for patients as a Registered Nurse, I became an Attorney and now I advocate just as fiercely for my clients.


I enjoy practicing law as a sole practitioner, it affords me the opportunity to give each client the attention they deserve without having to be accountable to a business oriented structure. 


I have varied interests that lead me to different areas of the law. While I focus on a few areas, I will take other cases that interest me.
