I have been practicing law and specializing in divorce and family law for more than twenty years. I am a graduate of the Detroit College of Law and member of the State Bar of Michigan. My specialty, family law has proven very satisfying. I am appreciative of all of the positive feedback from clients. I serve the Livingston, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties.
My undergraduate degree in Business Management was where I became fascinated with the study of law. An introductory class in business law piqued my fascination. The love and respect I experienced for the legal profession remains with me today. I see law as a force for good, fairness, and justice. This is evidenced with excellent results in cases involving: divorce, custody, parenting time, child support, spousal support, and property settlements.
In my personal life and current law practice, I see the anxiety and confusion experienced by clients seeking divorce. My value system dictates that I make the process as painless as possible. I strive to resolve cases peacefully with out-of-court settlements where possible to save clients time and money and to minimize the damage done to families in what is a difficult and stressful time. However, I am prepared and able to litigate effectively on my client’s behalf should the need arise. I stay current and knowledgeable in all areas of family law. I attend family law conferences three times a year and have been invited to attend the Family Court Forum, sponsored by the Family Law Section of the State Bar.
When I meet with a client we discuss what their specific goals are and I explain their legal rights. Then together we determine the best course of action to take in their particular case.
