About me

I am married, have two children, and play the bass in our church's praise and worship band.  


I started working in a law office when I was an undergraduate in 1989 and that's where I discovered family law.  I decided to go to law school and have never seriously considered doing anything else but family law.  It is an area of law where I know I can make a positive difference in people's lives.
