I have been a family law attorney for over 25 years, representing clients on custody and placement issues and the multiple financial aspects of divorce, including maintenance, child support and property division. I listen to and educate my clients. I work with my clients to find out what their needs, expectations and goals are and work with them to achieve the desired outcome while trying to minimize the emotional turmoil.
I am also a Divorce Mediator. A divorce mediator guides couples through the complexities of divorce, assisting, facilitating and encouraging parties to reach a mutual agreement. Mediation is widely used and well known for the higher satisfaction levels it provides in delivering a fair and agreeable divorce settlement.
Specialties: Litigation and mediation of family law matters including, divorce, custody and placement, property division, maintenance and child support and paternity.
