About me

I have been practicing law in Louisville since 1972 and focusing on Family Law for more than half of those years.  I am a  Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and former Chair of the Family Law Sections for both the Kentucky Bar Association and the Louisville Bar Association.

I have decades of experience as a trial attorney with training as a mediator, arbitrator and collaborative law professional.  Contact me today if you want to talk about how we can use my vast legal experience to help you resolve your complex divorce and Family Law issues.
