About me

I am a family law attorney and mediator. I live and office in Chanhassen, and practice in the Twin Cities metro area. I see my role as that of a "guide" through the legal system - educating my clients as to their legal rights and obligations, and assisting them in formulating a plan based on the facts of their particular family situation. I am trained in Collaborative Law and strongly believe it is a viable option for most individuals who are attempting to resolve family-related disputes.
