About me

"Divorce hurts, but it doesn't have to be nasty." After 16 years in the courtroom, I have settled into practicing exclusively family law. In addition to working to ensure fair settlements in these cases, I believe a part of my role as an Attorney is to educate my clients about the impact the law will have on their specific issues. I strive to help them to understand the legal implications associated with their choices, and provide them with the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. My focus is resolution driven with the least amount of conflict possible.
