About me

Before going to law school I did graduate work in psychology because I wanted to help people.  Coming of age in the civil rights, women's rights and anti-war era, I thought the practice of law would permit me to work for the greater good, rather than just for one person at a time.  My practice has led me in both directions, helping families in crisis, whether due to divorce, death, or the decline of a loved one while working for legislative changes to benefit all of us.  I believe I have done both and will continue doing so in the future.
