We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
I went to law school to help make people's lives better and practicing family law has been one of the most rewarding ways in which to do that. Divorce and child custody issues involve some of the most emotionally charged and traumatic events people encounter. I enjoy (for the most part) helping folks see the light at the end of the tunnel and helping them find ways to make the best of an otherwise terrible time in their lives.
While the "law" certainly is a critical part of practicing family law, my own personal experience during my divorce and subsequent custody battles (the divorce took four years to obtain and the custody battles took place about every two years for well over a decade) give me ground level experience about the emotional trauma that goes along with these types of cases. I have to say that I finally got wise and married my best friend from high school and have been happily married to him for almost 20 years. We have lots of kids (only a few of which I actually birthed - the rest came over to eat dinner and never really left) and a very firm belief that it is possible to create your own family, regardless of blood ties. (We were the "Blind Side" long before the movie came out, just for the record.)
On the other hand, I served as General Counsel for a multinational corporation prior to practicing family law, so I have a strong business background and understand where the money can sometimes go in family owned businesses. I can comfortably track assests and income streams from many sources and understand how division of marital busineses can alter the business valuations.
Going to court is my work version of chocolate. I absolutely love it and it has the added benefit of being fat free.
