About me

Before become an attorney I was a career service fire fighter. Before becoming a divorce attorney I was divorced.


I am a working class guy that has been in your shoes. Because of my background I approach helping you from the point of someone who needs the help, not from the point of an attorney that has never had to pay a retainer fee. 


Our law firm is dedicated to the practice of divorce and separation law and family law. We are dedicated to helping you through what is a difficult, confusing, complex, and uncertain time in your life.


We can represent you in a simple matter such as a support modification or in a complex divorce proceeding or an action to terminate parental rights. We have reasonable, affordable fees and always provide free phone consultations.
