The nicest compliment I’ve ever received about Sodoma Law was from a judge who described us as “smart, tenacious, and compassionate.” When clients come to us in the middle of a divorce or a custody battle, they deserve that blend of qualities from each of our family law attorneys. They need family law attorneys who will fight for them in the courtroom and empower them to achieve their goals at a difficult time in their lives.
When I opened the doors to Sodoma Law in 2008, I wanted to build a team who would help every client navigate the hurdles of separation and divorce with empathy and determination – in and out of court. I wanted to surround myself with people who live and breathe family law like I do. This practice is my passion; it’s not my job, but rather, who I am.
In hindsight, I have to believe that the events of my childhood led me on this path. I often joke with my family that my experience as a child of parents with “irreconcilable differences” predestined my career. As a family law attorney, I feel the advantage of understanding the experience of separation and divorce through the eyes of an adult and as a young girl. That experience was fraught with anxiety, especially at the beginning. I believe it’s our job, as family law attorneys, to educate our clients on their various legal options so as to reduce that anxiety and allow them to feel more in control of their cases. At our firm, each attorney and staff member believes not only in their ability to make a difference in a client’s life but also their ability to be supportive of a client’s emotional, spiritual and physical well being.
After more than a decade of practicing as a family law attorney, I know that when our clients contact us, they are typically making one of the biggest decisions of their lives. They each have somehow empowered themselves enough to make the journey to change what he or she has known…whether it was for one year or twenty years. I understand it is not always hard for everyone, but change affects us all. I see it with my clients. I saw it with my own parents.
Working with someone you trust is critical. From the moment we discuss your case, you will know that I will always do my absolute best to handle your concerns as if they are my own.
