I am committed to helping my client's achieve the best possible results in their personal circumstances. I educate clients on the different approaches available to best meet their unique needs, and help clients understand the benefits, risks, and costs of different divorce approaches and how their family challenges may be resolved and what each path may look like for them.
Many of my clients prefer to stay out of court, and I believe that the collaborative process is a good alternative to the traditional divorce process. Applying my litigation experience, supported by on-going education, I see a consistent pattern: a less painful settlement process truly helps clients move forward to where they want to be and not to an arrangement imposed upon them by an impartial judge.
