About me

My mission is to provide outstanding,
personalized representation, focusing on the long-term effects of family law
disputes.  My Firm is devoted to the
area of domestic relations and family law.  As a small firm, we are uniquely suited to afford client matters the individualized attention they deserve.   We represent both men and
women in all areas of domestic relations, including divorce, child custody and
access, child support, spousal support, domestic violence, separation and property
settlement agreements, marital settlement agreements, grandparent and third
party custody and visitation, and adoptions.


I am a certified mediator and am trained in the practice of Collaborative Family Law, both alternative forms of
dispute resolution designed to create solutions without the need to go to
court.  While my goal is to assist our
clients in reaching an amicable resolution of their family conflict, I zealously litigate those matters which cannot be resolved alternatively.


Additionally, I have the privilege of providing representation of minor children as appointed by the Court.
