I am a strong advocate for my clients. I represent the same number of fathers as I do mothers and have a background in father's rights cases as well as domestic violence and child abuse and neglect. I have a number of awards and publications on domestic violence and issues related to children exposed to violence. I also have an extensive history in providing adult professional education on these issues.
I am an agressive attorney who guides her clients through the process so that they always understand what is going on. I am very fair in the billing process and in how I collect fees. My clients often comment on how relieved they feel after talking with me for only a short period of time. I am about getting you a fair resolution and about moving you forward in your life. If you have children, they are my priority as well as your rights. Please call for a free initial phone consultation and I can help answer some of those questions that are keeping you up at night. I also give free initial office consultations. Take the time to give me a call and I will help get things moving forward in a positive direction. Thank you.
