About me

I enjoy practicing in the area of family law very much.  I get to engage with my client's and really put myself alonside them in the trenches.  I can empathize with my client's and I can also lay out a strategy for which we will be taking on some of these obstacles in the family court proceedings.  I want to make my client's comfortable with what is going on and I will give everybody the respect they deserve.  This is a stressful time, you do not need a lawyer who will patronize you but one that gets you.  The more you can understand the process, the better you will be able to prioritize all of your goals. I look forward to talking with you.
