About me

No one wants to go through a divorce or child custody conflict.  No one wants to fight over alimony or property.  But people are frequently caught in domestic conflicts and when they are, we want to help. 


My staff and I vigorously work to ensure that your interests are protected and to help you through this emotionally trying time with the least amount of difficulty. We are on your side!
