I worked in the Wayne County Juvenile Court in Detroit for 5 years and spent another 4 years working in non-profits assisting foster youth transition out of the foster care system. What I learned doing this work has allowed me to bring a unique understanding of how family law issues specifically impact children.
I am a state-certified mediator and have a deep understanding of how to manage high conflict cases. I have successfully handled complex family law cases in the areas of Custody, Guardianship, Adoption, and Divorces.
I am able to think outside the box and have used that ability to create outcomes in high conflict cases where other attorneys had already told my clients that what they wanted was impossible.
I bring all of this knowledge and experience to every single case where I personally handle every aspect from beginning to end.
