Prior to becoming an attorney I worked for over 15 years as a Mental Health Therapist counseling youths and their families. I have an affinity for children and believe they have a voice that deserves to be heard. Navigating the legal system can be extremely difficult for adults and often anxiety provoking and confusing for children and adolescents. They are are asked to make decisions that will affect their life that require guidance.
Though I am a strong proponent of the institution of marriage I understand that sometimes divorce is the best solution. As divorce is often not amicable having someone to advocate on your behalf is often necessary and well-advised.

I worked with Tiffany at the Hampton Public Defender's Office and she was one of the attorneys I supervised on the juvenile team. Tiffany is one of the hardest working attorneys I know, and I really respect her as an attorney. She is very smart and always does a great job in representing her clients. I have no problems endorsing her as a competent and zealous attorney in her areas of practice.
